Germany’s Unemployment Rate Falls to 20-Year Low

The Eurozone received a little positive news for a change today when it was announced that Germany’s unemployment rate fell to the lowest level since 1991. For December, unemployment fell from November’s 6.9 percent recording to 6.8 percent.

A strong German economy is seen as being vital as the Eurozone struggles to contain a debt crisis now sweeping several countries including larger economies such as Spain and Italy.
