UK employers defy approach of Brexit with hiring spree

LONDON (Reuters) - British employers ramped up their hiring at the fastest pace since 2015.

The number of people in work surged by 222,000, helping to push the unemployment rate down to its lowest since the start of 1975 at 3.9 percent, official data showed.

The increase in hiring was stronger than all forecasts in a Reuters poll of economists and pushed the proportion of the population in work to an all-time high.

The surprising resilience of the labour market and the subsequent rise in wage growth, plus a fall in inflation, are cushioning the Brexit uncertainty for many households, whose spending drives the economy.

EU rules Britain can postpone No Deal until April 12 and stay in the bloc until May 22 if the PM's deal finally passes next week
  • PM urged MPs to 'end their political games' and deliver Brexit three years after Britain voted to leave the EU
  • She hinted she'd rather quit or leave with No Deal than allow delay 'to give more time for politicians to argue'
In ominous news for Remainers hoping they can cancel Britain's departure at the 11th hour, French President Emmanuel Macron warned there would be a No Deal if MPs turn the deal down for a third time.
