FSB in Scotland on employment figures PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 November 2015

New figures published today show unemployment rising in Scotland while the equivalent UK figure has fallen.

Stuart Mackinnon, an advisor for the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in Scotland, said: “Today’s statistics - read with recent middling growth figures - need to focus minds in Edinburgh and London. While the proportion of people in employment in Scotland remains high, there’s obviously work required to tune-up the country’s economy and give firms the confidence to create jobs.

“There are a slew of big changes on the way for small employers during 2016. We would suggest to governments north and south of the border that we need to let these changes bed down before considering further adjustments to the business environment.

“Lastly, these Scotland-wide figures don’t reveal wide local variations in job prospects and prosperity. Efforts to look at the performance of local economies need to be top of the agenda at next year’s Scottish elections.”
