North East Unemployment Rates Rise

The North East is currently under a lot of pressure with recent business closures and ambiguity regarding Brexit. With the recent uncertainty of the future of the automotive industry and other closures across the region, unemployment rates are increasing and according to reports, the North East is facing the biggest increase in the country. The first quarter of the year has seen unemployment rates rise by 0.6%, making the total percentage of people without jobs at 5.7%. It’s therefore crucial that we all work together to save the local economy and prevent further increases.
