They're both proportional, so even with migration, you can't have a rise/fall in both at the same time.

You're not taught by Mr Gibbs are you? He's my economics teacher and is the kind of **** that would embarass himself asking something like that.

there is a whole section in economics which explains how there are simultaneous rises in both employment and unemployment

the migration one is the only one i remember, which i can explain, since more people come to the uk they add to the employment rate but they also add to the existing unchanged unemployment rate becuase they bring familys etc. this means the employment rate rises aswell as the unemployment rate.....

He doesn't mean the whole rate..

There could be an increase in employment levels and an increase in unemployment levels, whilst the overall level would either be an increase or decrease in employment.

ok, in england the mining industry was on the decline, the government anticipated this and invested in other sectors (secondary sectors i.e manufactoring) so whilst jobs were being lost in the mining sector, jobs were made in the manufactoring sector.

bateman what you described is merely replacing unemployment with employment
what im asking is ways in which both of them rise not the ways in which they cancel each other out
