THE number of unemployed Islanders continues to rise, with 140 more people out of work at the end of September than at the same time last year.

Official figures released today reveal that there are now 1,370 Islanders registered as unemployed a month ago – the third highest figure ever recorded and 20 more than at the end of August.
The data is particularly significant as there are usually fewer people unemployed at this time of year.
