German unemployment hits fresh record low

Joblessness in Germany fell to a new historic low in November, official data showed Thursday, as employers shrugged off a darkening economic outlook to keep hiring.

Just 5.0 percent of workers were unemployed this month, according to seasonally-adjusted figures from the Federal Labour Agency (BA), fewer than at any time since German reunification in 1990.

“The news from the labour market is once again favourable this month,” said BA chief Detlef Steele in a statement.
