UK not out of the woods, yet

The Bank of England has suggested that a squeeze on company profits as productivity falls faster than wages could trigger another wave of job losses in the New Year.

So far in this recession, by agreeing to pay cuts and shorter hours, many employees have been able to stay in work.

But though wage costs have dropped, productivity has fallen faster. Not a recipe for recovery!
