Unemployment drops to 3.6 in August

Unemployment in the Czech Republic fell to 3.6 percent in August, from 3.7 percent in July, according to the Czech Labour Office.  The number of jobseekers fell by 4,289 to 267,889 while the number of jobs offered has increased. Unemployment usually rises slightly in August due to the arrival of new graduates on the labor market, but economists predicted a stagnation as the economy recovers from the pandemic.
