Following today's employment statistics, Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit, said:
“It is worrying that the total proportion of people working in the UK has decreased for the first time in a year and a half. As the deadline for Article 50 looms the government have said they will publish their Brexit plan in January but they mustn’t think they can fob off the British people with a couple of meaningless lines. To get the best from Brexit the government’s plan must guarantee that people’s jobs and livelihoods are secure. If they do a botch job then a great many people could feel the pain of losing their jobs and having their livelihood put at risk."
