Greek unemployment hits new record of 27 pct in November

ATHENS, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Greece’s jobless rate scaled a new record of 27.0 percent in November from a revised 26.6 percent in October, the country’s statistics service ELSTAT said on Thursday.

Greek unemployment was more than double the euro zone’s average rate of 11.7 percent in November as a crippling, austerity-fuelled recession continued to take its toll on the labour market.
