"Today's figures show that unemployment is starting to accelerate and it now looks very likely that total unemployment will reach two million during 2009" - TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber, 17th September 2008.
"It is entirely predictable that some employer groups will say that the minimum wage increase will threaten jobs, yet it has helped millions without significant job losses." - TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber, 28th September 2008.
Are two million unemployed people insignificant!?!
