Employment figures show highest ever employment + youth unemployment lowest in 12 years

This weeks figures: #Employment 74.6% (highest ever), #Unemployment 4.8% (lowest in 11 years); #YouthUnemployment 12.6% (lowest in 12 years).
There remains ebbs and flows in the north east figures but the upward trend over the last 6 years is very positive. Much work to do but the direction of travel is clear.
