In the US, increased the number of requests for unemployment benefits
Over 300 US citizens applied for unemployment benefits last week - a record number in 000 months. Analysts say it is too early to panic, as the rise in the number of unemployed is associated with seasonal changes. At the same time, the overall level of employment in the country is now on the rise.
The unemployment rate rose only within three months. Over the past month, applications were filed 12,2% less than a year ago. The number of applications in October almost reached the all-time low of 14 in 279 years.
At the same time, the number of employed citizens increased significantly. In November, employers hired 229 people, the best figure since 1999. The average number of hires per month so far is 194 thousand.
The overall unemployment rate fell 5,8% - to the lowest level in 6 years. Last year, the unemployment rate reached 7,2%.
And yet in the country now there are about 9 million unemployed citizens, of whom only a quarter receive benefits, writes AmericaRu.com
