UK unemployment total falls to 2.16mBack

jobs1The UK jobs market continued to improve in the three months to April, although the rate of wage increases slowed sharply, official figures show.

The number of people out of work fell by 161,000 to 2.16 million, bringing the unemployment rate down to 6.6%.

The number of people in work rose by a record 345,000, to 30.5 million, most of which are in full-time employment.

But the quarterly rate of earnings growth, including bonuses, slowed to 0.7% from 1.9% the previous month.

This was largely due to delayed bonus payments, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said. Excluding bonuses, pay rose by 0.9%.
