Glasgow Interactive Proud To Announce New Openings In Glasgow
Glasgow, UK, September 2013 - Glasgow has been revealed as the workless capital of the UK, according to a new survey which found one in three households has no-one at home in a job.
The study released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) this week found that 30.2 per cent of homes in Scotland’s largest city in 2012 were workless, up from 28.7 per cent a year before.
Glasgow has now overtaken Liverpool as the British city with the highest percentage of workless households. Experts last night blamed a combination of low job vacancies, poor health and high levels of lone parenting for the crisis.
They said efforts to get the unemployed and those on disability benefits back into work needed to be stepped up to take advantage of any economic revival.
The figures, published annually by the ONS, also exposed the huge disparity in the labour market in different parts of Scotland, with only 12 per cent of households out of work in Aberdeen and Moray.
The focus will fall once again on Glasgow’s continuing problems which remain despite tens of millions of pounds being spent on employment initiatives over recent years by the council, and the UK and Scottish governments.
The ONS report concluded: “The common link among some of the areas with the highest percentage of workless households is that they were all heavily industrialised in the last century.
“Glasgow was once a major force in shipbuilding as well as other engineering but competition overseas has seen that decline since the 1960s.”
He added: “Glasgow continues to attract high levels of investment, as witnessed by the number of major office developments currently under way in the city centre, and we are confident that our economy – now so much more diverse than in the past – will grow in strength in the near future.”
Glasgow Interactive have just announced they are holding a recruitment drive in the city centre and are offering ILA courses with opportunities for work following the course.
