FSB on Scottish Job Figures PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 15 June 2017
New figures published today show that Scottish unemployment fell to just 4.0% in the three months to April 2017, while employment north of the border rose by 14,000 over the same period. 

Colin Borland, FSB’s head of devolved nations, said: “Unemployment has now fallen to the lowest level in 25 years. While there is still work to be done to create jobs for the 109,000 Scots out of work, this is good news.

“Despite consistently low confidence from small businesses over the past two years, these figures show that Scotland’s smaller businesses are still hiring. It is therefore incumbent upon the new UK Government to shelve plans for any potential increases to National Insurance Contributions for these vital job creators.”
