    Mr Hammond said 'There are no unemployed people'...

    Where are all these unemployed people? There are no unemployed people. We have created 3.5m jobs since 2010. This economy has become a jobs factory.

    In the grand order of things, once the unemployment rate drops to a certain level, the only people unemployed would be people changing jobs, thus there is no need to provide more jobs as there is an equilibrium. All fine and dandy in the ivory towers. In the real world things are different, what does being employed mean nowadays? Anything between 60 hours and zero hours.

    It used to be 16 yrs old leave school and you were classed as employed or unemployed,now you have to go to some sort of education or training course/apprenticeship,so no one under 18 is classed as unemployed although a huge percent of these people have no job,.

    Unemployment figures are being skewed by people being forced into self-employment, zero hours workers and the gig economy in general. Under employment is now an issue. A lot of people don't get enough hours to live on.

    The biggest single reason for people being referred to foodbanks is low income. People who are employed according to Government stats but who don't earn enough money to feed themselves.

    Hence low productivity, a worker in Germany produces in 4 days what it takes in the UK a worker 5 days.

    All this unemployment may be due to the extra 112,000 EU workers who have come to Britain in the past year,according to the first full set of official figures published since the EU referendum.
    All despite Brexit of course.😁

    By no means all, but the majority of people out of work in this country are so by choice. EU citizens come to this country to fill the jobs that the British either will not do, or choose not to do. Do not criticise foreigners who come to this country to work and consequently contribute to the economy through taxes. Unlike the indigenous non workers who just expect the state to keep them through benefits. If it was not for foreign workers, this country would be in a worse state than it already is.

    Some... not all and maybe not most... unemployed are so because its a choice. Based on what/why is a hotly debated topic.
    As above some foreign workers are also here based on choice... some because the wage they get in there own country is worth less than the wage they get here.
    Its a very simple statement to make "no unemployed" and on its own does not mean a lot... how many employed are in receipt of working benefits because their wage is lower than the government deems the minimum?... is a zero hours contract really employment?
    I wonder what the unemployment figures would say if "employed" meant a guaranteed 38 hours on at least minimum wage for longer than 12 months...? and it excluded "seasonal" work as employed.
    We could argue that the benefit rates are to high or conversely that wages are to low... I would argue that the benefit rates are set by the government at the lowest possible survival level and that a job paying that level, or close to it, isnt a job at all with a question.... If you get benefits after working a full week is it a job or a way to get people off the unemployed register?
