On the Lower Saxony labor market, the relaxation seen at the beginning of autumn has not continued.

Among other things, the registration of further refugees from Ukraine led to the number of registered people without a job increasing slightly by 0.3 percent to around 235,000 in November.

This was announced by the regional directorate of the Federal Employment Agency on Wednesday.

Hanover - The unemployment rate was 5.4 percent, as in October.

Unemployment had fallen in the two previous months.

According to the authority, looking back over several months and taking an average view, “a recovery after the effects of the pandemic is still noticeable”.

In the early phase of the Corona crisis, many companies had to register short-time work or cut jobs on a large scale.

Compared to November 2021, there were 8 percent more people officially registered as unemployed in Lower Saxony.

In addition, fewer vacancies were displayed.

BA regional head Johannes Pfeiffer also pointed out problems with the integration of severely disabled people in Hanover.

This means a missed opportunity in the fight against the shortage of skilled workers.
