Dutch Unemployment Figure Soars to 8.1%

Unemployment in the Netherlands is rapidly growing. In March, 30,000 people lost their jobs. This is a further acceleration compared to earlier months of this year when 20,000 people lost their jobs. At present, 643,000 people, or 8.1% of the professional population which wants to work, are without employment. Peter Hein van Mulligen, an economist of the Central Bureau of Statistics said that the age group between 25 and 45 was hit hardest in the past months.
