Recession Woe: Job Losses Hurt The Regions

Post by viper on Tue Apr 14, 2009 9:02 pm

Job losses during the recession have impacted most on large cities outside the capital, with the Birmingham the worst affected.
Research showed the biggest jump in total numbers of people claiming unemployment benefit were found in the North, West Midlands and Scotland.
Areas linked with traditional manufacturing and heavy industry also saw a significant rise, a study by The Work Foundation found.
The number of people claiming Job Seeker's Allowance (JSA) in Birmingham rose more than tripled over the past year.
In February 45,657, 7.3% of the city's potential workforce, claimed JSA - compared to 12,383 the same time last year.
The number of unemployed people also rose significantly in Leeds, Glasgow, Sheffield, Hull, Manchester, Bradford, Kirklees, Liverpool and Bristol.

However, the sharpest increases in unemployment - as a percentage - often came in council areas which never shared in the success of the economic boom.
The Wear Valley saw the biggest percentage increase, with unemployment more than doubling from 1,117 to 2,342.
Blaenau Gwent in Wales saw an increase in people claiming JSA of almost 70%, from 1,970 to 3,338.
And the number of jobless in Hull was up by more than 65% from 8,062 to 13,366.
Naomi Clayton, senior researcher at The Work Foundation, said the council areas "tell a story of a more traditional UK recession".

"Some areas which had yet to experience the economic prosperity enjoyed by others are once more showing how vulnerable they are to downturns," she said.
And Ms Clayton warned policy makers to "ignore how recessions play out locally at their peril" as well as advising the Government to adjust the forthcoming budget to reinvigorate Britain's largest cities.
:: The figures were taken from the Office of National Statistics for England, Scotland and Wales.
