The heads of the EU were today celebrating another record breaking performance after the latest figures show that the union has successfully managed to beat the previously held record for the highest rate of unemployment in the eurozone area.
Total unemployment for the EU is at 12%, which is the highest it has ever been since the EU was formed.
The leaders of Europe have successfully managed to grow the total amount of unemployed people to over 19 million, something which has never been done before and which is a testament to their hard work and innovative policies.
Speaking earlier amidst waves of cheers, President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz commented that:
We are thrilled with this news. We didn’t expect our plans and policies to be as effective as they were, but this is a positive step for the union and it’s members. We have just raised the bar and brought much needed growth to all member states across the board.
This record breaking performance is one that will be hard to beat, but no doubt EU leaders will be focused on improving it in the months and years ahead.
Europe is about growing and moving forward and these positive changes in the total unemployment rate should send positive messages to everyone right across the eurozone area and is expected to help bolster investor confidence.
