Job­less fig­ures just don’t add up for me

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS | SOCIETY NEWS -

WITH var­i­ous stores clos­ing at the mo­ment I am baf­fled by the fact that sta­tis­tics say that un­em­ploy­ment has gone down.

It makes you won­der where the staff go. It seems the high street stores like Toys R Us, Maplins, Mother­care, New Look and even Marks and Spencer are hav­ing to lay off staff.

But surely this would make the un­em­ploy­ment fig­ures go up?

Does this mean that the staff who are out of work get work straight away and not on the un­em­ploy­ment register?

Some­thing does not com­pute some­how. K Roberts, by email
