The EU Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review – I Q 2015

Published on 13th April 2015, the Quarterly Report of the European Commission: Employment and social situation (March 2015) indicates a noticeable increase in employment in most EU-member states in 2014, including examples of countries with the highest unemployment rates, such as Greece (26%) and Spain (23.2%). There has also been an increase in the number of contracts for an indefinite period and for a specified period of time. However, unemployment among young people, despite the slow slight decrease, still remains at a high level of 21.1% in EU member states.

We invite you to read the executive summary of the report on the European Commission’s website and to read the entire document which is available here.
