Commenting after the Office for National Statistics (ONS) had published the latest set of labour market statistics for Scotland, Grahame Smith, Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary said:
“Today’s figures confirm once again the very slow pace of recovery in Scotland’s labour market. The pace of jobs growth is far too slow to give Scotland’s 190,000 unemployed people any comfort that they will soon find a job. Indeed the employment rate hardly shifted over the second half of 2013”.
