"The UK has one of the best labor markets in the world, with the highest employment and lowest unemployment of the major world economies," said UK Minister for Work, Des Browne.
Unemployment is now at its lowest for nearly thirty years. The number of unemployed people claiming benefit is at the lowest level since 1975.
Every region in the UK has an employment rate above the European Union average.
