Jim McGovern comments on the Fall in Unemployment

12 November 2014

 Speaking on the fall in unemployment, Jim McGovern, MP for Dundee West said:

 “This fall in unemployment in Scotland is obviously good news, and it shows that businesses are increasingly optimistic of Scotland’s position in the UK, providing them with the confidence and security to expand their workforce.

“However there is no room for complacency as, despite the fall, Dundee is still one of the worst-performing areas for long term unemployment and the Government needs to urgently implement a jobs guarantee for the long term unemployed to prevent a generation of joblessness.”
