In the coming months, unemployment will probably increase in connection with the decline in seasonal work, which corresponds to the classic development curve, according to the labor office. According to him, despite the current stabilization, economic and social changes, as well as the development of the war conflict in Ukraine, can continue to influence the situation.
According to the data of the labor office, since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia at the end of last February, 330,511 Ukrainians with temporary protection have found work in the Czech Republic. Some of them have already returned home or left their jobs. At the end of this month, 123,309 of them worked in the Czech Republic, mainly in Central Bohemia, the Pilsen Region and the capital.
Most often, Ukrainians work as assembly workers, helpers in construction, production and transport, or as machine and equipment operators.
Last October, the unemployment rate in the Czech Republic was the same as this year, i.e. 3.5 percent. A year ago, there were 255,792 people without work and 297,360 vacancies.
