Jonathan Reynolds – 2020 Comments on ONS Statistics on Fall in Workers

The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, on 15 September 2020.

These new figures are deeply concerning, over 5 million people are not working and 2.5 million have been out of work for three months or more.

Unemployment will continue to rise unless the Government acts now and adopts a more flexible approach targeted at the sectors that need it most.
