Genteeeee!!! Ho finalmente trovato un sito con news in inglese su cosa succede qui in Finlandia e mi ha subito colpito questo articolo:
Unemployment Figures Down
Unemployment was down on the previous year in January, according to figures from Statistics Finland. In January the figures showed an unemployment rate of 8.2 percent, which means around 215,000 people. The figure is 35,000 less than a year earlier.
According to Statistics Finland, youth unemployment has clearly fallen. In January 19.1 percent of 15-24 year-olds were out of work, which is 3.6 percent lower than the previous year’s figure.
The Ministry of Employment and the Economy also released figures on Tuesday. According to the Ministry, the number of unemployed was 266,000 at the end of January, a reduction of 29,000 on the previous year.
Unemployment came down all over Finland, according to the ministry. The fall was most pronounced in South Ostrobothnia, Ostrobothnia, Pirkanmaa and North Savo.
The Ministry claims that the workforce grew as a result of various labour market policies, including training. Those benefitting from such programmes numbered 107,000 at the end of January, a rise of 19,000 on the previous year.
The Ministry estimates unemployment at a higher rate than Statistics Finland because they include those who are not actively looking for work, but are registered with the unemployment office.
