Czech Republic -Unemployment still high -January 10, 2014

Although the recovery in industrial output strengthened in November and third quarter GDP showed slight growth on the previous three months, unemployment didn’t drop, with the national jobless total now just under 600,000. The harsh economic fact is that whatever the good news on GDP, inflation, and industrial output, it will take time to convert into new jobs and lower unemployment. Just as employers cut overtime and temporary jobs when times get hard, they usually boost overtime but make do with the existing workforce when there are signs of an upturn.
