Do you remember early this year when (not for the first time) Ms Harman was caught out peddling myths about men and the recession? Well here are some more figures to prove it.
Figures released by the Office of National Statistics yesterday show that one in six homes are now without someone of working age in employment. Delving into statistics on page 24, it can be seen that the employment rate of married/cohabitating men has fallen from 91.0% (April to June 08) to 88.8% (April to June 09) whilst the same figures for married/cohabitating women has only fallen from 71.7% to 70.7% over the same period.
Let's hope that those men and women who have lost their jobs find work soon.
If a married/cohabitating men loses his job, his wife/partner is also suffering (plus any children). This is always important to remember because the anti-male crusaders would have you believe that male suffering only affects men so that's why men do not matter. They forget that women are as equally affected.
