MP Laura Sandys says the drop in jobless claimants in South Thanet is “extremely encouraging.”
Ms Sandys believes this is due to the amount of growing local businesses and in particular the huge growth at Discovery Park in Sandwich.
The Conservative MP says this is the biggest one-month improvement since the last election.
There are now 632 more people in work in the area than last year.
Ms Sandys added: “The news of this dramatic fall in unemployment claimants is extremely encouraging indeed.
“Now more than ever, being in work really pays so I am pleased for the many families who will be better off and more financially secure than they were a month ago.
“Now more than ever, being in work really pays."- MP Laura Sandys.
“This increase is of course down to our wonderful local businesses, which are growing at a faster pace than ever and creating jobs in sectors from arts to manufacturing, healthcare and even scientific research due to the continued investment in the Discovery Park in Sandwich."
