Severe deterioration of the Angers area employment market in one year

The situation of the un-employment in Angers Loire Métropole area has experienced a severe deterioration between April 2012 and April 2013. According to the last survey, "Le Baromètre Eco", published by La Maison de l'Emploi in June, the number of unemployed persons stood at 15 121, an increase of 19%. It seems that the youngest part of the population is the most severely hit given that during the same period, the number of people registered by the Mission locale angevine rose by 18% between the first 4 months of 2013 in comparison with the same period one year ago.

"The un-employment rate never stops to increase since the second quarter of 2011", notes the survey. At the fourth quarter of 2012, it went over the mark of 10% (10.1%), every time closer to the national average (10.2%). And in the temporary work branch, the contracts of umployment recorded the lowest figure since five years : 6 090 in 20
12 vs. 6 263 in 2009.

According to the Maine-et-Loire Chamber of Commerce, the prospects are not reassuring. During the year ending in April 2013, the number of start up and buy-back companies decreased by roughly -15% and -6%. In industry, the order books are narrow and the manufacturing should not evolve in the months to come. In the commercial activities, the situation is stable and no increase is forecasted. The conditions are also stable in the credit activity.
