Deloitte Chief Economist comments on this morning's unemployment figures
16 July 2019
Commenting on the latest unemployment figures, published this morning by the Office for National Statistics, Ian Stewart, chief economist at Deloitte, said:
“The jobs market seems to have defied gravity, with wages rising and unemployment falling even as growth has slowed. The big question is how long can that last. With job vacancies edging lower and firms more cautious on hiring, the pace of job creation could slow from here.”
