Number of employed Germans on the rise for another year | Business | DW.DE | 02.01.2013

Statisticians in Germany have said the number of employed people in the country has kept increasing despite the financial crisis. Over the past 12 months, more jobs have been available in many sectors of the economy.

2012 saw another rise in the number of employed people across Germany, the National Statistics Office (Destatis) said on Wednesday on the basis of preliminary calculations.

It said some 41.5 million people were employed in Germany last year, marking a 1.0-percent increase from 2011 levels and a rise for the sixth consecutive year.

Since 2005, the army of employed people in the country has swollen by 6.8 percent, or by 2.66 million people in absolute terms.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
