Breaking news: Unemployment rate in France reaches 10.2 percent

The French Republic is in the news because of an Islamophobic cartoon published in one of its newspapers, however, France also has a problem with unemployment. The unemployment rate is reported to be at 10.2 percent, but that is still less than it was in 1997 when it was 11.20 percent. 

France is the largest country in Western Europe and has a population of 65,350,000.

According to Wikipedia, the Republic of Vanuatu in the South Pacific Ocean has the highest unemployment rate in the world - 78.21 percent. Vanuatu was once a French and British protectorate.
