Remarkable Statistic

Watching the news the other night, and they were discussing what else but the economic downturn, and were giving out hard facts about the major cities in the UK.

One thing that astounded me, was that Liverpool has 10% unemployment - a 25% rise since last year.

I find it incredible that 1 in 10 people in a city could be unemployed.

"I find it incredible that 1 in 10 people in a city could be unemployed."

Why? It's a fact of life now unfortunatley.
#2
Not really - most cities, even the worst hit, were around 5% - but for some reason, Liverpool was a major stand-out.
#3
I know what your implying and theirs also a song for it.
#4
Generally speaking I think it's the non-skilled labour that gets hit the hardest.

Not implying anything, just thought it was weird that Liverpool should be 'the odd one out' - it's not like any major industries in the city have folded, to the best of my knowledge.

1 out of 10 unemployed sounds good to me.

For instance: There's several large blocks of (council estate) flats near where I live in Windsor (in Berkshire) - living in the area for 20 years+ I can tell you that a huge percentage of those people don't work for a living.

The '25% rise' in Liverpool's unemployed is the stat that sounds scary.

Like said before their is more manual labour the further north you go and that gets hit the worst

there is a difference to 'their' and 'there' and 'there're'

Alot has happend in liverpool recently. For example, Abbey let over 100 staff go recently, car manufactures are making people redundant, alot of people in the building trade can't get jobs, there are big stores in the new shopping centre shutting down. Even the local news papers are cutting down on staff.

You'll probably find that alot of cities are the same, only Liverpool is the one that gets mentioned the most, as apparently most scousers are on the dole, according to popular belief.

Massive, massive waste of money
#11

Yeah, the same appears to be happening all over the UK in the cities - the issue is that Liverpool's unemployment has increased disproportionately.

You'll probably find that the 'figures' have been heavily exagerated aswell

Why would 'they' exaggerate the figures - is there an agenda against Liverpool or something?
#16
Liverpools unemployment is the same as everywhere else right now all the media and statisticians are reporting is that places like Liverpool and Hull will be hit by the recession more! but thats not really the case right this second

Aye. Or they'll be doing something silly, like thinking that 10% of the population claiming unemployemnt benefits is the same as 10% of the population actually being unemployed. It's not hard to be paid cash-in-hand when you're a manual labourer and claim dole on top.

So, you believe they're making up these stats as they have something against those cities?:whistling:

It is easy to say places like liverpool have a higher unemployment, as thanks to the 1980's thats what the nation have come to expect of merseyside. The stats could have been written in such a way as to make people believe that once again the south is better off. as is so typical of our media
