Berlin Wall: 20 Years Later

BERLIN (AP) -- Germany's Federal Labor Office says the country's jobless rate ticked up slightly to 6.7 percent in August as 30,000 more people joined the ranks of the unemployed.

The office said Thursday there were 2.90 million people out of work in August overall, and as a result the unemployment rate inched 0.1 percentage point higher from July.

When adjusted for seasonal factors, the jobless rate has remained steady at 6.7 percent since March.

Federal Labor Office head Frank-Juergen Weise says he doesn't expect much change in Europe's largest economy over the coming period.
