A quickie from Insider:
‘The number of jobs advertised in Edinburgh has surged 80% in two years, according to new analysis. There has also been a rise in the number of people applying for jobs in Scotland’s capital, increasing around 36% from 178,584 in 2016 to 242,089 in 2018. Figures from job platform Totaljobs showed that the number of posts advertised rose 80% from 13,304 in 2016 to 23,943 in 2018.’
As before, this news gives me the opportunity to remind you of previous good news on the jobs front:
Unemployment in Tory UK is 15% higher than in Scotland
Unemployment in Scotland 13% lower than UK and wages higher AFTER SNP government gives businesses more than £4 billion in rates relief
Further evidence of better employment practices in Scotland
Unemployment in Scotland below UK level and employment better paid
Or see below the merciful other reality of employment in modern Scotland?
Scotland’s ‘trends of high employment and low unemployment’ persist but our media prefer to headline only a wee bit of bad news
