The number of unemployed in Germany has risen to over 2.5 million in August. “Despite the economic and political uncertainties, the labour market robust,” said the new BA CEO Andrea Nahles on Wednesday in Nuremberg when the figures were announced.

The increase in unemployment is mainly due to the registration of Ukrainian refugees in the job centers. According to the BA, the number of unemployed rose by 77,000 to 2.547 million from July to August. The unemployment rate increased by 0.2 points to 5.6 percent. Higher unemployment is usual for August before the autumn upswing begins with the end of the summer holidays and the start of the new training year.

Adjusting for seasonal fluctuations, unemployment rose by 28,000 to 2.497 million, according to the BA.
