Italy's jobless climbed again to 8.8 percent in June from an upwardly revised 8.2 percent the previous month, according to the latest preliminary data from Istat. The statistics agency said the result again reflected a rise in the number of people actively resuming the search for work following the Covid-19 lockdown. In the last month alone, 149,000 jobs were lost while some 752,000 fewer people were in work in Italy compared to June 2019.

Italy’s overall employment rate fell to 57.5 percent in June, with the youth unemployment rate among 15-to-24-year-olds increasing by nearly 2 percentage points to 27.6 percent.
