Government jobs, in their infancy, have always been a key part of the British workforce.
However, the UK now has one of the highest unemployment rates in the developed world, and it has been increasing since the start of the Great Recession.
According to a new report by the government-backed consultancy McKinsey, the number of government jobs has now surpassed 10.5 million, a record high.
The government’s jobless growth rate has risen from 5.7% to 8.3%, which is almost double the average rate of the developed economies of the world.
However the rise in unemployment is also tied to the sharp rise in the cost of living, which has also increased the cost for the government to pay its employees.
For example, the government is paying its workforce an average of £1,400 ($2,100) a week, and the inflation rate has increased by more than 500%.
The McKinsey report notes that, while the number working in government is rising, the average salary for UK workers has fallen by £1.5 billion ($1.96 billion) since 2011, which is more than 10% of the UK average.
This has led to the government struggling to find more staff to fill the positions that have been cut.
According in the report, the cost to the British economy of paying for government jobs was £7.8 billion ($11.3 billion) in 2013, while it is now projected to be £11.7 billion ($14.4 billion) by 2019.
Meanwhile, in the past few years, Britain’s overall unemployment rate has been rising, as the number who are out of work has risen by almost a quarter.
