FSB: Great jobs figures reveal other challenges PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 14 July 2017
New figures published today show that Scottish unemployment fell to 3.8% in the three months to May 2017.

Colin Borland, FSB’s head of devolved nations, said: “Unemployment in Scotland is now very low indeed. Overall this is great news for firms and families.

“However some Scottish businesses are also reporting rising skills and labour shortages. Therefore – as Brexit negotiations continue - it is even more important that no matter when they arrived, European nationals who work for or run businesses in Scotland must be allowed to stay.

“Further, official figures show that one in eight of those in work in Scotland are classified as self-employed. As yesterday’s Taylor review suggested, we need to give real help to those that have genuinely set-up on their own. In addition, the UK government needs to carefully tackle the thorny issue of false self-employment.”
