One cities story
In the early 1900s, Salford was a dockyard and the gateway to supplying Manchester’s industrial revolution. By the 1980s, the docks had closed, leaving the same tract of land devoid of jobs: no skills, no pay. In one of the areas around Salford, unemployment rate was at over 30%. Now Salford Docks has become Salford Quays, home to more than 8,700 businesses, employing 127, 000 people. There are 25 times more jobs in Salford today than there were a century ago, with unemployment at less than 5%.
