New unemployment rate high record in the eurozone in May 2013

12.1% of economically active population, i.e. 19,220,000 people, were unemployed in the eurozone in May 2013. This is a new high record. Spain with 26.9% and Greece with 26.8% are the national economies which experienced the highest unemployment rates while Austria saw its unemployment rate declining to 4.7% and Germany to 5.3%. The austerity policies in the periphery of the eurozone are socially murderous for the people there.
