Shorter Limerick City dole queue but jobless numbers still too high

It now stands at 11,119 – a reduction of 23.7 per cent. Unemployment still remains too high but we have made significant progress and that momentum will be continued in 2015,” she said.However, Sinn Féin leader on Limerick City and County Council, Cllr Maurice Quinlivan, took a different viewpoint.The City North councillor maintains that when quoting the CSO figures, it should be remembered that for every job created, five people have emigrated.He also claimed that much of the drop in the Live Register is attributed to schemes like Gateway, JobBridge, the large amount of students attending third level and those forced to emigrate.“Since last month, 156 fewer people are on the Live Register in Limerick City but we do not know whether these people secured employment, emigrated, took up training, were forced onto job schemes or were simply cut off from their payments.“Also much of this fall has resulted in some very low paid positions, many with limited hours of work. Low pay and underemployment being two key challenges in the employment market. 30 per cent of workers in Ireland will earn €20,000 this year or less and roughly half of the State’s workforce are categorised as part-time with 40 per cent of these underemployed,” he said.“Any recovery built on low wages is a false economy and the speed of recovery has been unacceptably slow. The Government’s four deeply unfair budgets have also meant that what little recovery is taking place is only benefiting those at the top.“For the vast majority of families, 2015 will start with property tax and water charge bills. Meanwhile the ESRI confirmed that Budget 2015 will actually result in a loss of income for 60 per cent of households with only the richest 10 per cent benefiting in real terms. This is hardly something to be celebrating.”“People are fed up of Government spin. They want real investment in job creation. They want properly paid employment. The want the property tax and water charges abolished. And they want an end to the unfairness that has been the hallmark of this Government since taking office in 2011,” he concluded.

Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Brian Honea U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-California), a senior member of the House Finances Services Committee, was assigned to the Capital Markets and Government-Sponsored Entities Subcommittee and the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee by HFS Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), according to an announcement from Royce’s website on Friday.Royce, who has been a member of the HFS Committee since 1995, is also the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The Capital Markets and Government-Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee has jurisdiction over U.S. capital markets, the securities industry, and GSEs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.The function of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee is to oversee the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as well as government-sponsored insurance programs such as the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).”As a longtime advocate of eliminating the failed duopoly that is Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, I look forward to completing the unfinished work of financial reform and passing legislation that returns long-term stability to the housing market,” Royce said in a prepared statement. “Congress must act to ensure a sustainable housing system that ends taxpayer-funded bailouts and encourages private sector capital, investment and innovation. I’ll also aim to reverse Dodd-Frank’s failure to harmonize cross-border regulations, bring transparency and accountability to the regulatory bureaucracy, and shore up the financial system’s defenses against cyber attacks.”On Wednesday, while many lawmakers and housing industry executives praised the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)’s decision to lower mortgage insurance premiums down to 0.85 percent, Royce had a different take.”The president’s decision reflects a race to the bottom between the FHA and the GSEs in which the private sector is crowded out and taxpayers are left holding the bag,” he said in a statement on his website. “The financial crisis is proof positive that an increased government presence in housing distorts the market and promotes the very boom-and-bust cycle we are trying to avoid.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Postlast_img read more

Private inventories, consumer spending, business fixed investment, and exports received the upward revisions. Meantime, compared to the prior quarter, which wasn’t annualized, there was a plunge of 11.1% in pre-tax profits; that was on the heels of a dip in the first quarter of approximately 12%.Last month, remaining essentially intact were personal income, adjusted for inflation, the Bureau reported. There was a 0.7% uptick in real personal income growth, transfer payments aside, while real personal consumption expenditures bumped up 1.6%. That said, however, it’s still falls 4.7% below February’s level. There was a sag in the personal saving rate from 19.2% to 17.8%. The PCE price index inched up 1.0% from a year ago. That’s a one-tenths boost from June, while the core PCE price index ascended 1.3%, which pushed the pedal to the metal by two-tenths from the prior month.In August, there was a drop of 6.9 points to 84.8 in the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index—the lowest reading dating back to May 2014. In the aftermath of a two-month climb, the present situation index withdrew, which the plummet continued in the index for consumer expectations.  In the final August reading, the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment index drifted up to 74.1, a boost of 1.6 points.In July, the Census Bureau reported that orders for durable goods parachuted 11.2%. However, the still were fell 6.3% short of February’s levels.There was a spike of 13.9% in July for new single family home sales to a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 901,000—which the Census Bureau indicated is the largest boost since December 2006.While Fannie Mae forecasts a degree of cooling in new home sales in the upcoming months with a fall in pent-up demand, it continues to expect new home-sales and construction to proceed unabated in conjunction with a burgeoning economy.Meantime, after trailing off—significantly—in March, April’s reading of housing starts and permits from the Census Bureau tumbled even further.There was a drop of 20.8% in April housing permits while housing starts dipped by 30.2%. Completions for the month, meantime, sagged by 8.1%.In the northeast month-over-month, housing starts drifted 43.6%; in the west, a 43.4% drop was reported from March. There was a drop off annually by 11.8% in the number of homes completed.Holden Lewis, Home and Mortgage Specialist at NerdWallet, said April’s drop is associated with the uncertainty of whether or not buyers will return to the market later this year.“On top of that, they have to guess about the availability of construction workers in the next few months. This will exacerbate the housing shortage that many places suffer from. With fewer houses being built, there will be less opportunity for today’s homeowners to move up and sell to first-time buyers,” he said.center_img Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News This Week’s Housing and Economic Report Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Chuck Green has contributed to the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune and others covering various industries, including real estate, business and banking, technology, and sports.
