Unemployment increases in June

The number of people without work in the Isle of Man went up last month, to hit a rate of two per cent of the economically active population.

In June, an extra 40 people signed on, making a total for the Island of 846.

Of those, 604 are men and 242 are women, and retail, hospitality and skilled construction workers are the worst hit categories.

Figures from the Treasury show 272 positions were held on file at the JobCentre at the end of June.
