English commuters could claim new jobs
JOBS predicted to be created in Wales over the next decade could be filled by commuters travelling in from England, according to a new study.
The Working Futures report from the UK Commission on Employment and Skills predicts unemployment will fall more slowly than in the UK as a whole and that the number of people out of work will shrink by just 3,000.
The Welsh Government said jobs and growth were its top priorities. One economist said its efforts should concentrate on the private sector.
And with the number of employed residents in Wales projected to grow at a much slower rate, they said this suggested there was the potential for inward commuters to take many of the new jobs created between now and 2020. In 2010 there were 119,000 people out of work in Wales.
