Why have you only mentioned 11 of the 28 eu countries? Could it be because the unemployment rate in the other 17 would be regarded as low?
If you're stupid enough to base whether we should stay in the EU on a cyclical factor like unemployment, you shouldn't be voting...
I only listed a few because I had to go to work. Do you know what that is? It's what us folks out in the real world do to earn a living. Although really, I call it work... it's more just getting in touch with the other cram school's each day and sorting out any problems, paying my staff's wages and checking out that everything is OK. Doesn't take me too long.
Pipe down with the personal insults, son or I'll have to make you stand in the naughty corner.
If I listed them all it wouldn't make the EU look any more positive, champ. I also didn't mention Croatia's 15.1%
4-5% is considered a healthy unemployment rate so by those standards you have just 7 countries with what is considered a healthy unemployment rate.
Every other country has unemployment above 6%.
So Germany and Britain's unemployment rate is low, so what? I hardly doubt that's down to the EU considering Greece, Spain, France, Portugal and Italy are failing in the EU. A handful of successes does not mean the EU boosts employment.
Now I know most people on here are students and so are a bit wet behind the ears and haven't lived in the real world yet. But it's quite simple to understand that a group such as the EU has failed if it allows any of its member states to have employment rates as bad as say, Spain's over 20%
Even France's 10% is shocking.
