CITY VIEWS: WILL UNEMPLOYMENT CONTINUE RISING?

GRAHAM WOOD | LINEDATA SERVICES
“Unemployment will go up because the effects of the recession on the manufacturing sector still haven’t come through. This year’s graduates will be competing with graduates from last year and there are not enough jobs to soak this up. It’s going to be hard.”

BRET JACKSON | CORNHILL CAPITAL
“It will get worse before it gets better, and then stabilise. The economy is unsure about moving forward and so companies are waiting to see what will happen. The election is a key factor and not enough information has been put in the public domain.”
