There is no increase in unemployment in Moscow, the situation on the labor market is stable. This was stated by Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Yefimov, speaking at the SPIEF-2022 site.

– In general, we do not yet see an increase in unemployment: it is at the same level – around 0.5%, – Efimov told RIA Novosti. – In fact, this means that there is no unemployment in the city.

According to the deputy mayor, the real figures are such that the number of vacancies is 8-9 times higher than the number of unemployed. (That is, the ratio of those who are looking for work and real jobs – from 1 to 8 to 1 to 9).

– There are more vacancies than registered unemployed, – Efimov stated. – We can say with confidence that there is no tension in the labor market at the moment. We can see from personal income tax receipts that the situation is stable, we have a positive trend in this tax compared to last year.

These indicators indicate that the incomes of the citizens are not decreasing (that is, at least they remain at the same level as before all the economic surges of recent months), the residents of the city are consistently receiving their wages.
