According to Alister Jack, the UK government is dedicated to assisting individuals in finding and progressing in employment, as well as driving long-term economic development.
Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said:
“Scotland’s labour market continues to demonstrate its resilience, with unemployment remaining close to historic lows and the number of employees on the payroll continuing to rise.
“The UK Government is committed to helping people find and progress in work, and to drive sustainable economic growth. The Chancellor set out a number of measures in the Autumn Statement to put public finances on a secure footing and to promote economic growth – steps that are already making a positive contribution to tackling inflationary pressures.”
