Scots jobless total has NOT decreased
One wishes Westminster would STOP the misleading practice of counting people
who have been placed onto 'job training' schemes as being employed... they are NOT.
Joblessness continues to be a major issue in Scotland and no amount of London playing
with the figures can make that any less real to the 60,000 Scottish kids living in
poverty for yet ANOTHER Christmas.
