Geneva, June 3 - Italy needs to create 1.7 million
jobs to be able to return to the employment levels it had before
the global economic crisis started in 2008, the International
Labour Organization said Monday.
"Since the second quarter of 2008, the Italian economy has
shed roughly 600,000 jobs," read the Snapshot of Italy in the
ILO's World of Work Report 2013.
"Given that the working-age population has grown over this
period by approximately 1.1 million, Italy needs to create
roughly 1.7 million jobs to restore employment rates to
pre-crisis levels".
The United Nations agency pointed out that unemployment in
Italy has increased sharply since the beginning of the crisis.
It was 6.1% in 2007 but stood at 11.2% in the last quarter
of 2012 after climbing "almost uninterrupted, and stood at 11.2%
in the last quarter of 2012.
Unemployment reached 12% in April, national statistics
agency Istat said last week, with around four in 10 people aged
15 to 24 on the dole.
"The challenge of finding employment in Italy has been
particularly acute for young persons aged 15-24," the report
said.
