The inside track on the recession

You only need to turn on the telly for a few minutes at the moment to see we're in a very worrying period for the economy and hence for our jobs - Redundancies and hardships for certain business sectors are making the headlines daily. The real situation is complex though, and if you'd like a little more of the facts and trends behind the more "hell in a handcart" style headlines, you can check out the TUC's new Recession Report, which plans to track economic and employment developments every month, to give you an inside track on what's going on. But if you'd just rather browse the web in denial, we can (with tongue firmly in cheek) recommend a helpful utility called Recessionblocker.com, which simply screens out any of the gloomier words that might upset you when reading the news.
