Labour market statistics for February 2018 to April 2018 show employment increased by 146,000 and unemployment decreased by 38,000.
Matthew Percival, CBI Head of Employment Policy, said:
“The data paints a familiar picture – strong employment growth and falling unemployment. Yet stubbornly slow pay growth means living standards remain under pressure, so doubling down on efforts to boost productivity remains critical.
“Vacancies are at a record high and access to skills and labour is a huge concern for businesses. Government could help immediately by removing all shortage occupations from the tier 2 visa cap so employers – including the NHS – can access the skills they need.
"Longer-term, it’s essential that the link between labour mobility and trade is recognised to create a truly Global Britain – and the first test will be the UK’s relationship with the EU.”
