Swiss May Jobless Rate Remains at Lowest in More Than Two Years
Swiss unemployment remained at the lowest in more than two years in June as companies boosted their workforce to meet global demand.
The jobless rate held at 3 percent when adjusted for seasonal swings, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs in Bern said in an e-mailed statement today. That’s the same as in May and the lowest since January 2009. The figure is in line with the median forecast of nine economists in a Bloomberg News survey.
The unadjusted jobless rate fell to 2.8 percent from 2.9 percent in May. The number of job openings fell by 623 to 21,193 in June.
