British unemployment total falls to 2.58million

Wednesday, 18 July 2012
The number of British people out of work fell by 65,000 to 2.58 million in the three months to May, official data show.

The number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance or handouts rose by 6,100 to 1.6 million in June, according to the Office of National Statistics. The number of people in employment rose by 181,000 to almost 30 million.
Could this means a turn around of the British economy or just the effects of the Olympics.

On the whole, the number of long-term unemployed also increased, with those out of work for more than two years rising by 18,000 to a total of 441,000, the highest since 1997.
The British job market continues to be shambolic and as the government struggles to catch up with a dipping economy, there concerns as to how the government can stimulate the economy once more.
