Italy -200,000 jobs at risk -January 15, 2014

Central statistics bureau Istat reported estimates of the main labour market indicators resulting from the ‘Labour force survey’. A total of 208,283 people claimed benefits for temporarily laid off workers in 2013, meaning they are in real danger of being made permanently unemployed in the near future. Unemployment reached a record 12.7% of the workforce in November 2013 with nearly 42% of under-25s out of work. There were 522,000 fewer people employed in the third quarter of 2013, with 333,000 in the economically less developed south.
