Lithuania -Official unemployment rate has fallen -April 26, 2013

The Statistics Department released data that reveal that the country’s official unemployment rate has fallen from 15.3% in 2011 to 13.2% in 2012. This percentage is still above the EU average and the true figure is thought to be much higher as many people prefer to engage in seasonal work abroad instead of registering unemployed at home. In the meantime a proposed minimum wage reform is still under discussion.
