High housing costs mean unemployed can't afford to move for work

Mon, 13/01/2014 - 13:20 -- nick

The high cost of housing means unemployed people cannot afford to move for work, threatening to trap them in areas with few jobs and to derail the fragile recovery.

A report by Priced Out, the pressure group aiming to push housing up the political agenda, has released a report showing that the places where jobs are being created have some of the UK's highest rents.

This can disqualify many jobseekers from higher unemployment areas from taking up these opportunities.
