ERSA welcomes the latest Labour Market Statistics published today, which show employment is at record levels of 73.7% and youth unemployment is at its lowest level since 2006.

Kirsty McHugh, ERSA, Chief Executive, says:

“Over 178,000 young people have started a job with support from the Work Programme since it began in 2011, and we can see the impact this is having in today’s Labour Market Statistics, which show the lowest youth unemployment levels for almost a decade.”
