BRISTOL, UNITED KINGDOM - MARCH 18: People queue outside a Job Centre on March 18, 2009 in Bristol, England. Official figures published today show that UK unemployment has risen above two million for the first time since 1997 - and according to the TUC, there are now 10 jobseekers for every vacancy advertised in UK jobcentres, with many economists predicting it will go above three million mark next year.
