Unemployment decreases again

Compares with close to 900 vacancies

There's been a further reduction in unemployment on the Isle of Man last month - it's now sits at its lowest level in 13 years.

407 people are without work in the Island - 64 per cent of that figure is male.

The number has gone down by 229 people compared to the same time last year.  

It means the rate of unemployment here stands at a mere one per cent.

That compares unfavourably with nearly 900 vacancies notified at the job centre.
