Monthly Labour Market Monitor January 2010

18/01/2010 Monthly Labour Market Monitor January 2010

Latest data for November/December 2009 show that EU labour markets continue to weaken, although at a more moderate pace.

Unemployment is still rising in most Member States, but labour markets have shown stronger signs of stabilising in certain countries, confirming an easing in the deterioration of the EU labour market overall. Nevertheless, despite improving economic prospects and sentiment, the labour market outlook remains unfavourable for this year and is only expected to show a gradual improvement afterwards. This month's edition of the Monthly Labour Market Monitor includes a special focus on the shipbuilding sector.
