Monthly Labour Market Monitor April 2010

13/04/2010

The labour market in the EU is continuing to deteriorate at a moderate pace, though we are starting to see more consistent signs of stabilisation in some Member States – according to the latest Monthly Labour Market Monitor from the European Commission.

Rises in the unemployment rate eased in most EU countries in February, with only Latvia recording a steep increase, while the rate stabilised in several countries, including Germany and the UK. As the economic recovery is still facing headwinds, latest forecasts suggest that the EU labour market willjustlevel off during 2010.

This month's edition of the Monitor focuses on recent developments in the ICT and retail sectors.
