Today’s employment and unemployment figures show further improvement in Wokingham. Last month there were 356 people on Jobseekers Allowance, down by 184 on a year earlier and down by 10 on November.
Wokingham is the 11th best constituency for low unemployment, with a rate of 0.6% of the working age population on Jobseekers Allowance. I am glad most have found jobs. The local labour market offers opportunities for those still looking for work.
