The article reports on the employment condition in Great Britain. Job appointments and vacancies hit a record low in December 2008, according to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG's latest joint Report on Jobs. The British Chambers of Commerce warned in its latest economic forecast that as many as one in 10 workers could be laid off over the next two years, pushing unemployment above three million by 2010. The new statistics have prompted calls for further government measures to boost employment and kick-start the economy.
