Unemployment rate continues at record low in Mid Derbyshire

The unemployment rate in Mid Derbyshire is at 1.4%, below the national average of 3.1%.

Figures released today show that unemployment continues to be at its lowest national level since 1975. The employment rate and number of people in full time work are at record highs, with wages rising ahead of prices for 22 consecutive months. This marks the progress made by the Government in creating jobs and opportunities for employment, both nationally and regionally.

This People’s One Nation Conservative Government will continue to repay the trust shown to in the general election and concentrate on securing well-paid jobs and helping hard working families with the cost of living.
