The number of people left unemployed worldwide due to the financial crisis exploded in 2009, reaching 6.6% at a global scale, namely 212 million people, according to an International Labour Organisation report. The institution warns that the recovery of the economy does not mean a drop in the number of the jobless.

"The number of jobless worldwide reached nearly 212 million in 2009 following an unprecedented increase of 34 million compared to 2007", the report reads.

Between 2007 and 2009, the unemployment rate went up 0.9%, the organisation shows. The crisis has made about 12 million more people redundant in 2009 alone, the document adds. According to the report, the industrial sector was the worst affected of all.

10.2 million young people increased the number of jobless from 2007 to 2009. This is the biggest increase in unemployment since 1991.

The organisation considers that despite the measures taken by governments, the global unemployment level will remain high in 2010.

In the industrialised countries and in the EU, the number of jobless might increase by three millions this year, reaching to 8.9%. In the rest of the world's regions, the unemployment rate might drop slightly.
