11월 취업자 28만5천명↑…석달만에 증가폭 20만명대로 둔화
The number of newly hired workers in South Korea fell in November with just over two－hundred－eighty－five thousand added to the workforce.
That′s down from over 300－thousand workers coming into the workforce each month since September.
Also， the youth unemployment rate rose correspondingly to eight－point－one percent， an on－month increase of zero－point－seven percentage point.
Statistics Korea attributes the fall in monthly employment to bad weather conditions which reduced the number of jobs in the farming and fishing sectors.
It added that available work in the wholesale and retail sectors also shrunk significantly.
