Eurozone unemployment has hit a record high of 10.9% (17.3M people are now looking for work), with Greece clocking in at 21.7% and Spain at 24.1%.
The EC claims that it is taking the problem seriously, and will (by the end of May) publish "country specific recommendations".
Given that the rate of unemployment rose by 169K in the last month, this means that even if the recommendations were of any use (which of course they won't be) another 169K people will be out of work by then.
The EC's only real objective is to ensure that it obtains a budget increase of 6.8%, it is fiddling whilst Europe burns!
The EC is not fit for purpose, as the people of Europe are finding out to their cost.
