Jobless total up 2.4% in July, still 13% lower y/y

Ljubljana, 3 August - The country's registered unemployment increased in July by 2.4% over June after a months-long downward trend which led to the lowest joblessness since 1990. The monthly rise to 47,287 jobless registered with the Employment Service at the end of July was mostly due to termination of fixed-term employment contracts.
