The number of people with…

The number of people without jobs climbed to 1.075 million or 21.9% of the workforce.
The March level was the highest since 2004.

Greece is now in its fifth year of a recession marked by increasing business bankruptcies and exacerbated by tough austerity measures.

Young people remain the hardest hit by the recession, with a staggering 52.8% of those aged between 15 and 24 years old without a job in March, a sharp increase from the 42% recorded a year earlier.

The proportion of women without work was 25.8% in March, compared with 19.2% a year earlier.

European leaders have said the coming vote is crucial for Greece’s future in the euro zone and have called on Greeks to back parties that will proceed with austerity measures. Apparently, the above results provide ample evidence that the followed path is correct!
