Greece: Employment Flows Balance Negative in November

December 11, 2020

ATHENS — The balance of employment flows in Greece was negative in November, a traditionally negative month of the year, recording a loss of 29,933 job positions compared with the same month in previous year, the "Ergani" IT system said in a report on Friday.

The report noted that November was further burdened by the second wave of the pandemic and the imposition of a lockdown but stressed, however, that full employment grew to 50.70 pct for new job positions in the January-November 2020 period.

Labour Minister Yiannis Vroutsis, commenting on the report, said: "In an environment of great uncertainty and with unprecedented health conditions prevailing in the country, we remained primarily focused with all our strength on protecting the weak, workers, the unemployed, the whole labour market and the preservation of job positions, so that we all move forward together toward the future."


ATHENS - Already struggling with inflation and costs soaring in the aftermath of deadly floods that wiped out much of the country’s agricultural heartland in Thessaly, residents in Greece are also seeing the prices soar for the famed Feta cheese.
