U.K. Jobs Market Appears Unrattled Post Brexit Shock
The U.K. labor market showed signs of continued resilience after the country’s referendum on European Union membership, according to the first official numbers since the vote. Jobless claims unexpectedly fell 8,600 in July after increasing 900 in June, the Office for National Statistics in London said on Wednesday. Economists had forecast a rise of 9,000 in the number, which can be volatile from month to month and includes some very low earners claiming benefits.
