Over 380,000 unemployed in Croatia


Review Hari Stefanatos

According to daily figures released on the Croatian Employment Service (HZZ) website, 380,116 people were seeking employment, on Tuesday, with 7,277 advertised vacancies.

HZZ points out that both the unemployment rate and the job openings vary on a daily basis, however, the unemployment is far from declining.

At the end of December 2013, 363,411 people were seeking for a job in Croatia, while the month with the lowest unemployment rate in the country for 2013 was August, with about 313,500 unemployed. This reduced number, however, can be largely accounted for by the increased job demand during the summer tourist period.
