Four key charts from the UK labour force data

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) released data on the condition of the UK labour force earlier this morning, showing slight improvements to employment and unemployment figures.

Here are four key charts from the ONS release:

We're doing better than the EU at least, but the fall in unemployment has flatlined compared to progress in the US.

Long-term unemployment is still a big problem for the UK.

Pay is still lagging behind inflation, and regular pay at least doesn't look set to catch up any time soon.

Employment of UK nationals is rising at more than double the pace of non-UK nationals.
