Greece's jobless rate climbs to new record in Oct, at 26.8 pct

ATHENS, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Greece’s unemployment rate hit a new record of 26.8 percent in October from a revised 26.2 percent in September, the country’s statistics agency ELSTAT said on Thursday.

Greece’s austerity-hit economy is expected to contract for a sixth consecutive year in 2013. The unemployment rate stands at more than double the euro zone’s average of 11.8 percent in November.
