The state of affairs with employing the working population in Ukraine remains catastrophic, Social Policy Minister Pavlo Rozenko said at a briefing. According to him, there are 30-35 people running for one vacancy in Ukraine today.
"Due to the fall of our economy, the number of job offers has been going down, and, the number of job applicants has been growing along with unemployment," he said.
According to Rozenko, one needs to create new jobs and ameliorate economy of the state to improve the situation.
