Unemployment rate almost reaches 500,000 in June 2014

BANGKOK, 28 July 2014 (NNT) - The National Statistical Office (NSO) has revealed that the unemployment rate in June 2014 stands at 448,000, which is an increase of 200,000 people when compared to the same period last year.

People working in the service and trading sector faced the highest unemployment, with 130,000 people being out of jobs, closely followed by the manufacturing sector at 70,000 people, and the agricultural sector at 40,000 people.

However, unemployment has also affected new graduates who have not entered the workforce yet. Statistics show as many as 160,000 university graduates and 100,000 high school graduates are unable to find jobs in the month of June as this is the period when the market is flooded with new graduates.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
