In an article posted on the Huffington Post by a Paris-based organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development lists the 10 countries with the highest unemployment rate in the recent years of depression.
“Many countries on the list have seen high unemployment rates for years, most notably Spain, whose unemployment rate recently hit a Eurozone record at 21.3 percent, with 4.9 million Spaniards now jobless.
Other countries have trended in the opposite direction, however. Germany, for one, has watched its unemployment rate fall to 7.1 percent from 7.8 percent at the time of the report’s publication. The United States has also seen some recent improvement, albeit notably less steep than Germany’s drop.
Despite these improvements, the OECD’s report finds that unemployment rates overall have increased across the globe, with the fews exceptions including Israel, Poland and South Africa.”
