Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of course, it's worth to point out that the French employment trend (at least during Jospin's time) was upward in the last decade or so, reversing an earlier strong downward trend.

I'll add the UK data: Q4/2005 employment [Excel table!] was 28,803,000 (apparently seasonally adjusted, and from the population projection [pdf!] I estimate 60,315,000 in the middle of Q4/2005, gives 47.8%.
