If there were less immigrants there would be more jobs. Every time I go shopping the shop employees are of ethnic origin and not British!
This article stinks becuase they gave the totals but how about the percentage rates? That would give a better idea how this rates in comparison to US rates. The author didnt even give the total number of the workforce in case you wanted to figure the pwercentage yourself. Not only is the author slacking, so is the editor, he should have sent this back to include percentage rates!
Agreed, without that familiar percentage number it's hard to guage how bad their unemployment is. The most common unemployment percentage number that we use here is more of a statistical number than it is a real number though and maybe if they gave their percentage it would just be an apple and oranges comparison anyway. Our unemployment percentage is computed in a way that if you exhaust your unemployment benefits you are no longer counted as unemployed, their numbers may look at things more realistically.
