T&T’s unemployment figures may not be reflective of the actual reality.
MSJ Leader David Abdullah says how the unemployment figures are measured may have certain flaws in recording how many people are actually in the active labour force.
He explains that unemployed persons who are ‘looking for work’ are counted as being employed until a certain period.
The MSJ Leader adds that that in some cases, persons may be counted as being employed despite having only part time work such as Government make-work programs.
Mr Abdullah was speaking on CNC3 this morning.
