Blackouts can lead to rising unemployment: what you need to get benefits

Ongoing massive shelling of Ukraine's critical infrastructure and as a consequence - constant rolling blackoutscause trouble not only Ukrainians in their homesbut business hit hard. Some businesses due to blackouts forced to reduce work schedules and production volumesand even close completely. Accordingly, this will entail rising unemployment.

On According to State Employment Service, the number of registered vacancies by the end of October is 32 thousand units. This is more than half as much as on the corresponding date last year, when it was available 70 thousand vacancies. Still looking for work 250 thousand unemployed. In this way, Today 8 unemployed apply for one vacancy, while last year it was 4 person.

Despite the fact that at the beginning of a full-scale war about 2,5 million Ukrainians have lost their jobs, now many will face this not very pleasant situation for the first time.
