Unemployment in Rožňava District at 21 percent and still rising

The unemployment rate in Rožňava district (Košice region) has reached 21 percent and is still rising, said Rožňava job centre spokesperson Miroslava Spišáková on December 16. "Over the past month, we've registered more than 430 new job seekers, with former employees of (engineering company) Siderit in Nižná Slaná making up the largest number," said Spišáková, pointing to the global economic crisis and falls in production as the main reasons. A strong investor would help the area, said Spišáková, but nobody is in the offing at the moment. The district has certain hopes linked to a project involving cross-border cooperation with Hungary. The mobility of the workforce in the district is still quite low.

"Only young people are interested in working in different areas or foreign countries. When it comes to older age groups, habits and commuting expenses play a big role," Spišáková added. TASR
