How to use labour in a sentence?

  1. Tim Roache:

    He probably could do a bit more, let's hope he will, my biggest concern is that Labour voters will stay at home ... the reality is that the more people stay at home, the more likely it is that we will leave the EU.

  2. Tomoaki Shishido:

    If this continues while labour participation does not increase, the jobless rate will fall to around 4.5 percent by the end of year and the Fed risks falling behind the curve in keeping inflation in check.

  3. Tomoaki Shishido:

    One hypothesis the labour data is putting forward is that employment may now be growing at a pace of almost 300,000 even after the dollar has strengthened considerably. That is clearly above the speed limit, if this continues while labour participation does not increase, the jobless rate will fall to around 4.5 percent by the end of year and the Fed risks falling behind the curve in keeping inflation in check.

  4. Michael Paterson:

    Labour doesn't look out for ordinary people anymore.

  5. Darren Morgan:
