Today produced great news. Unemployment in Wokingham is now down to just 1% of the working age population. There are 330 fewer people out of work than a year ago, and just 550 left without a job. I wish them every success in finding something soon, in a local economy that feels much stronger and capable of generating more activity.
Wokingham is in the top ten constituencies for low unemployment nationwide. That is a tribute to the hard work and business sense of many in our area who are making work for others out of supplying our community with their goods and services.
