European Union economies have shed almost six million jobs since the global economic crisis struck in 2008.The International Labour Organisation said Monday, reports The Straits Times.
In a report on the European labour market, the UN agency said the employment rate across the 27-nation EU stood at 57.6 percent in 2012, down 1.6 percentage points on 2008.
‘This means that there is still a deficit of 5.9 million jobs to restore employment rates to their pre-crisis levels,’ the ILO said.
A million jobs have been lost in the past six months alone, it noted. banglanews24.com
