The CBI commented on the latest ONS labour market data for the three months to October, showing that unemployment fell by 63,000 to 1.96 million.
Neil Carberry, CBI Director for Employment and Skills, said:
'As we come to the end of the year, it's good news that unemployment continues to fall, as jobs are being created. It's good to see even more people working full-time.
'We are starting to see the first signs of real pay growth picking up, which will have given households an encouraging boost in the run up to Christmas.'
