Jobless figures just don’t add up for me
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?
