Small decrease in registered jobless at OAED

The number of registered unemployed at the Greek Manpower Organization (OAED) posted a small annual decline of 1,171 workers in March, bringing the total to 1,057,050 people. In February it had come to 1,061,221.

However, the number of long-term unemployed is continuing to grow while that of unemployment benefit recipients keeps decreasing as the allowance is only handed out to those without a job for up to 12 months. In March they totaled 107,623 people, down from 153,602 in February, the OAED data showed on Monday.
