Minister for Employment, Mims Davies MP said:
“Today the unemployment rate remains close to a 50 year low, and still well below pre-pandemic levels, with almost 2 million more women in work than 2010. That’s fantastic news, but there’s more to do.
“Work is the best way for people to provide for their families – those going into full time employment could be at least £6000 better off than out of work on benefits. That’s why we’ve launched the Way to Work campaign to get half a million more people into jobs.
“From job opportunities in Jobcentres to skills bootcamps for people considering a new industry, there’s a huge amount of help out there, and our Work Coaches are working tirelessly to get people at any age, or career stage, into fulfilling and stable employment.
“We’re also focused on helping people on the lowest incomes with the rising cost of living, including through changes to Universal Credit and rise in the National Living Wage.”
