So if you are looking for work in the U.K. what this means is you are competing against fewer people who are also looking than at any time in 40 years, even though the actual number of unemployed people of working age is increasing?

Increasing because larger and larger numbers of them are not in the market at all?
Is that a good thing (more stay-at-home-by-choice spouses and parents for e.g.)
Or a bad thing (more Roman artists (roaming the roads and drawing the dole))
