After the summer break, youth unemployment usually declines again significantly. Many young people who were not taken on after their training have now been able to find a job with another employer in october", thomas stelzer, head of the agency for labor schweinfurt, reports. The number of people leaving employment and the number of people entering employment balanced each other out in october. 925 people registered as being unemployed. The number of people moving from employment to unemployment was almost the same, at 929.
