This morning, BBC Scotland News told us:
‘Scottish businesses struggled to hire new staff last month…’
Predictably, they didn’t look at this ‘news’, selected from an RBS study, from the perspective of the majority of their viewers; that this is good news for job-seekers, nor did they consider the obvious point that this news tells us something good about the Scottish economy. We know that demand for office and industrial space is increasing and that this is because the business opportunities are increasing. So, employers struggling to fill posts almost certainly means that their demand for workers is likewise increasing, for the same reason. Don’t viewers deserve something informative on just why businesses are struggling to hire rather than just leaving the negative aspect dangling?
