Colombia, Greece and Spain have the highest unemployment among the OECD countries as of July

A recent report by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) reveals that Colombia (with an unemployment rate of 19.7%), Greece (17%) and Spain (15.8%) are the countries most affected by unemployment in the group as of July, says La República.

According to the report, in Europe, the unemployment rate in July increased for the fourth consecutive month, to 7.9%. In American countries such as Canada and the United States, the unemployment rate in July fell sharply (1.4% and 0.9%, respectively, to 10.9% and 10.2%), reflecting continuous decreases in the number of people on temporary unemployment. Data from other countries in the region such as Mexico and Chile are still missing for July to close the comparison.
