CBI Scotland responds to latest labour market statistics

CBI Scotland yesterday responded to latest labour market statistics.

Tracy Black, CBI Scotland Director, yesterday said:

“A more positive set of figures this month, with Scotland being only one of three areas to experience employment growth across the quarter.

“While that is positive news, we can’t get afford to ahead of ourselves. With businesses and households continuing to be hit hard by the pandemic, and the rolling cycle of restrictions put in place to reduce transmission, the Scottish labour market remains in a fragile position.

“While news of a vaccine has provided hope, many firms – particularly in the hardest hit hospitality, retail and tourism sectors – are still finding it difficult to operate within the toughest COVID-19 restrictions. That’s why the Scottish and UK governments must continue to do everything they can to support businesses through the winter.”
