Over the last seven years we have been working hard to create more opportunities for ordinary working people. That starts by helping more people into work so that they can earn a living and provide for themselves and their family.
Five years ago there were more than 2.6 million people who were unemployed. Today that number has fallen by almost a million.
And there’s more good news – since 2010 almost 2.7 million people more are in work. That’s millions more people going to work, earning a living and better able to provide for themselves and their family.
With more people in work than ever before, unemployment at its lowest in more than a decade, our economy growing and wages rising, our plan to support ordinary working people is working.
But whilst this is good progress, we know that there is so much more to do if we are to truly build a country that works for everyone.
Share this important news, and together let’s build a country that works for everyone.
