Latest unemployment figures...

Household Labour Force Survey for December 2014 just out.

In seasonally adjusted terms, unemployment was 5.7% in the December 2014 quarter. That's up 0.3 percentage points from the September 2014 quarter. 8,000 more people being unemployed over the quarter. Merry fricken Xmas, right?

For Maori, unemployment was down 0.2 to 12%, still shit and the drop is within the margin of error.
