Once again the Office for National Statistics has issued details of another record for employment in the UK.
The number of job vacancies has risen by 10,000 to a record high of 853,000.
At the same time average earnings, excluding bonuses, increased again as wages continuing to outstrip inflation.
Even the left leaning Guardian had a heading stating “UK pay growth surges as employment hits record high”.
It added “Average weekly earnings were up 3.4% – The biggest rise since 2008.”
Average weekly pay is now £494.
I think this demonstrates that despite the intense and continuing Government involvement around Brexit negotiations the country is still moving forward.
