Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
DoDo provided some numbers on that earlier;

To recap, percentage of the entire (not just working-age or adult) population working, Q4/2006:

  • thriving Anglo-Saxon economy USA: 48.2%
  • chronically ill Old European economy Germany: 47.2%
  • roaring New European economy Hungary: 39.0%

Jerome won't like this - for France, I couldn't yet find the employment quartal numbers (or even monthly numbers) on the INSEE website (maybe Alex can help out?), but the from 2005 yearly labour data [pdf!] released in March (24,921,000 employed) and the 2005 yearly population data [pdf!] (62,702,400 in the middle of the year), I get 39.7%.
