Netherlands / Unskilled worst hit by unemployment

The rise in unemployment between 2008 and 2012 has hit the low-skilled much harder than people with college or university degrees, the national statistics office CBS said on Monday.

In 2012, 8.8% of people with no or little further education were without work, up from 5.3% in 2008. But just 4.1% of people with a university degree were unemployed last year, up from 2.4% the year the crisis started.

Low-skilled people with building skills or who had done some form of technical studies were most likely to be unemployed, the CBS said.
