Number of under-employed men doubles in four years

A head of the  Labour Market statistics to be released tomorrow, the TUC has released figures which reveal that the number of men working part because they cannot find full employment has doubled over the past four years.

The TUC findings suggest that almost 600,000 British men were working on part time contracts while looking for full time employment opportunities.  This marks a dramatic increase from 293,000 at the end of 2007.

The trade union found that the east of England been worst hit by the increase with the number of men “trapped” in part time employment almost trebling to 60,000.

With part-time employment not being reported separately from full time, it is unlikely that this large group of under-employed will be outlined in tomorrow’s figures.  It is disappointing that a large proportion of the UK work force is unable to enter full time employment, will go not be noted.
