TUC’s 8th Recession Report

leave a comment »

The TUC’s eighth Recession Report was published this week – an extended edition in view of the recession now being one year old as well as in support of the TUC’s imminent lunchtime seminar on Tuesday next week. The report includes the regular analysis of the most recent unemployment data and the impact of unemployment on various groups and sectors, as well as a comparison of this recession with the ones of the 1980s and 1990s. The TUC concludes that, even though ‘Historical comparisons do not provide a basis for accurate predictions,’ this recession will, ‘Whenever it ends… continue to impact on our labour market for many years to come.’
