Unemployment

According to the Office of National Staristics, one job is being lost in Sussex every 80 minutes, or 18 each day. Manufacturing and construction industries have been particularly vary effected.

Certain politicians and economists are, wrongly in my opinion, saying we are coming out of recession. These economists, I fear, are offering false hope. Those politicians are promoting a cruel hoax.

The situation is going to get worse, much much worse, with unemployment increasing yet by more that a million.

In Brighton and Hove there has been a 64.8% increase in those out of work since May 2008, in East Sussex 98.2%, and in West Sussex 155%!

In Brighton these figures do not include the 80 staff who will be lising their jobs at Legal and General.

And worse is to come with substantial cuts anticipated in both the public and charitable sectors where funding will be cut over the next year and slashed after the general election.
