INOU warns recovery is not being felt countrywide

INOU warns recovery is not being felt countrywide

An organisation representing the unemployed has said the recovery is not being felt in all corners of the country.

The Irish National Organisation of the Unemployed (INOU) claims that jobseekers in rural areas can find it harder to get a job.

The INOU is releasing an online advise booklet this morning.

It includes information on supports available for people looking for work, as well as incentives for employers to recruit unemployed people.

Spokesperson for the INOU, Brid O'Brien believes there are logistical reasons why people in certain areas of the country struggle to secure work.

“We’re conscious from feedback of affiliates, members and unemployed people living outside urban areas (that) there is a lack of employment” said O’Brien.

“Our issues arise for people around transport and actually trying to access what opportunities are there.”
