The decrease in the indicator turned out to be more significant than the estimates of experts, who had predicted a decrease of only 10 thousand. At the same time, the unemployment rate in Germany reached 5% in November, which was the lowest value since January 1992. Data provided by the Federal Employment Service indicates that the German labor market remains strong. In November, registered vacancies increased in annual terms by 35 thousand, which indicates the current demand for labor in the country.
