9.6%

In May 2015, the unemployment rate in the eurozone stood at 9.6% of the working population. Average in the 28 countries of the European Union, it decreases: between May 2012 and May 2015, the rate increased from 10.4% to 9.6%. In France it is 10.3% remained in the same period. This constant compared to other European countries can be explained by the fact that it is the only one not to engage in structural reforms and effective public policies to fight against unemployment and sustainably boost activity.
