By Maria Martinez
France's unemployment rate in the third quarter fell 11.5% over
the previous quarter, as economic activity picked up amid an easing
of coronavirus restrictions, the country's Ministry of Labour said
In the third quarter, a total of 3.673 million job seekers in
metropolitan France registered with Pole emploi, a French
governmental agency which logs unemployed people.
On a year-on-year basis, however, the unemployment rate went up
9.5% in 3Q.
