From January until February, when the economy is starting to recover, about 50,000 people will lose their jobs every month.
The vast majority of them are in the public sector.
This is what a government study of people who have lost their jobs in the UK has found.
The numbers are staggering.
The figures have become a major focus for the government, with some MPs calling for a crackdown on “unfair” and “invasive” hiring practices, in order to stem the exodus.
Theresa May’s government says it wants to make sure people have the “same opportunities to have a successful career” as their predecessors, who built the country.
But the government’s own figures show it is only taking people out of the public services at a rate of about 10% a year.
It says it will continue to give support to those who want to work.
But there is also growing evidence that public service cuts are contributing to the long-term loss of jobs, and could be undermining efforts to improve the economy.
A new report, The Long-Term Effects of Public Sector Firms, from the National Institute for Economic and Social Research, shows that the government has been cutting back on public services since 2009, and that this is having a long-lasting impact on the country’s workforce.
The report was produced by Professor John Crampton, from Durham University, and Professor Paul Mason, from Cardiff University.
It is based on data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
What the researchers found It shows that over the past decade, the UK workforce has been falling.
“The public sector has lost over 2.3 million public sector jobs over the last decade, but over this period public sector employment rose by about 1.8 million jobs,” the report said.
“The UK public sector workforce has fallen by more than 1.7 million jobs since 2010.”
“This is a problem of uneven policy action.”
The report also found that public sector job losses have been disproportionately concentrated in lower-paid, less secure jobs, such as teaching and teaching assistants, and in occupations that tend to be low-skilled and insecure, such of nurses, school teachers, care workers and carers.
In total, there are about 6.7m public sector employees in the workforce today.
According to the ONS, only about 1 in 5 are in jobs that require formal qualifications, and only 0.7% of them require postgraduate training.
Public sector employment declined by almost 6% in the three years to April 2020.
How is the public’s labour force affected?
The ONS has been tracking people’s job loss since 2009.
During this time, the number of public sector staff working in jobs with less than a bachelor’s degree rose from around 2.6 million to almost 3.1 million.
The number of people in public sector occupations with less formal qualifications has also risen.
But the report found that while there has been a fall in public service jobs since 2009 to about 3.7million, the proportion of people working in less secure roles has fallen from 27% to 18%.
“These numbers do not reflect an increase in insecure positions,” the researchers said.
“In reality, public sector workers are far less likely to be employed in insecure and low-paid jobs than their peers in other sectors.”
They added: “These figures also show that public services are still failing to meet the needs of vulnerable people.”
The authors found that although the public service has made great strides in reducing job losses in recent years, it is still failing the public.
When asked about the long term impact of these job losses, the government says there are clear benefits to public sector service cuts.
In an email to BBC News, a spokesperson for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) said: “The Department for International Development (DfID) is committed to supporting and supporting the UK’s public sector, which is the backbone of the economy, by improving access to skills and training for all.”
The spokesperson said the government would continue to work closely with the public and businesses to deliver the economic and social benefits of public services.
However, the BIS spokesperson added that it was “important to remember that the UK is a global leader in technology and innovation and it is essential that our public sector is strong, competitive and flexible”.
“If public sector investment is to continue to boost economic growth, it needs to be supported by the private sector, not hindered by it,” the spokesperson said.
What you need to know about the UK economy This is the government claiming that the number one cause of job losses is people not wanting to work The ONS says it is wrong to think that there is a shortage of people willing to do jobs.
