More Scots at Work

Employment in Scotland has reached a record high, with official figures showing 22,000 more people found work in the last three months of last year, NewsNow reported. There were 2,636,000 Scots recorded as being in work in that period, making it the second consecutive month that official figures have put employment at its best ever levels. The jobless total fell by 5,000 over the quarter to 162,000, but the Scottish unemployment rate continues to be above UK levels, with 5.8% out of work, compared with 5.1%. Almost three-quarters (74.8%) of Scots classed as being economically active are in work, compared to the rate of 74.1% across the UK as a whole.
