An increase in unemployment at this time of year is essentially seasonal in nature. In connection with this, there is also the fact that in no other region of the schweinfurt labor market district has unemployment risen as sharply as in the district of bad kissingen (by an average of 0.2 percent in the region, but by 0.4 percent in bad kissingen). Because many newly registered unemployed people come from the hotel and restaurant sector, but also from the construction industry and other blue-collar professions. Many of them have already been promised reemployment in the spring.
"Until the end of 2012, the labor market in the region was spared any major burdens from the weakening economy", analyzes klaus seebach, deputy head of the agency for
