Unemployment drops by 56,000 people

333,000 people became unemployed in the first six months of 2013 and 389,000 were no longer paid the unemployment benefit, therefore unemployment went down by 56,000 people, reads a Government press release, Agerpres reports. The Government makes it clear that the data referring to the ‘real situation of unemployment in Romania’ in the first six months of this year are based on the ‘correct information’ supplied by the National Commission on Prognosis and the National Employment Agency.
‘The number of employees growing in constructions, both in June from December (to 356.1 thousand from 344.8 thousand) and in June 2013 from June 2012 (by 2.9 thousand people) shows there was no negative influence of the budget policy on investments. The fact that the main sectors in which the number of employees was dropped are sectors paying a salary above the medium salary nationwide shows that there was no negative influence of the policy on the substantial growth of the minimum salary,’ says the Government.
President Traian Basescu said on Monday evening that the relaunch of the investments from European money and from the state budget must be a major priority of the Government and also sounded the alarm that unemployment was on the increase.
