Taking into part-time workers and overseas populations, unemployment affected 5.6 million people at the end of February. Despite that negative overall evolution, French Labour Minister Francois Rebsamen drew attention to the decline of 6,300 in the numbers of jobseekers with no activity whatever, a 0.2-percent shrinkage over the past two months. He also applauded the drop in youth unemployment for the past two consecutive months, including a 0.3-percent decline in February, which he attributed to government programmes designed to stimulate job creation for young people.
