EU Jobless Tally 9.4%




BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Unemployment in the European Union held steady at 9.4 percent in June, unchanged since May but down from 10 percent in June 1998, the EU's statistics office said Tuesday.


In the 11 euro zone nations, unemployment remained at 10.3 percent, also unchanged since May, said the Eurostat monthly report.


The EU's unemployment stayed around double the rates in its main trading partners, with the U.S. jobless rate standing at 4.3 percent and Japan's at 4.7 percent, Eurostat said.
