Employment Service head says unemployment will rise

Ljubljana, 5 October - Slovenia's jobless total fell to a record low 52,043 in September since the country gained independence, but Employment Service director general Mitja Bobnar expects the figure to top 60,000 at the end of the year. If the prices of energy and other goods keep rising, the figure could be even much higher, he told the press on Wednesday.
