German unemployment edges slightly higher in June: figures

FRANKFURT -- Unemployment in Germany edged up in June as uncertainty from the eurozone debt crisis hits the labor market, official data showed on Thursday.

The number of job seekers in Europe's top economy rose by 7,000 in June from the level in May, according to seasonally adjusted figures published by the Federal Labor Agency in Nuremberg.

The adjusted jobless rate, which measures the proportion of people registered as unemployed against the working population as a whole, was unchanged at 6.8 percent.
