Unemployment falls in Waterford

Unemployment has fallen for the 19th month in a row, according to the Central Statistics Office (CSO), which also revealed that there was a 6.3 per cent fall in the number of people on the Live Register in Waterford last month when compared to January 2013.

Welcoming this news, Waterford City Councillor Seamus Ryan (Labour) said that despite a slightly improving picture nationally and locally, much work lay ahead.

“Exiting the bailout and economic recovery are only real when they improve the lives of hard pressed families in Waterford,” he said.

“And the first and most important way to achieve that is by creating more jobs….

“In particular, local employers should be aware of the JobsPlus programme, which provides cash payments to employers when they hire jobseekers who have been unemployed for over 12 months.”
