August saw less registration of unemployed people seeking jobs and less requests submitted by employers seeking workers, in comparison with one year earlier, the Israel Employment Service said Wednesday. Some 218,400 job seekers were registered with the service in August, down 7.6 percent from the 236,300 job seekers listed in August 2005. In seasonally adjusted terms, however, the number of job seekers rose 0.7% between July and August this year, the service said, adding that the war in the North caused fluctuation during the period. Worker demand fell 15.7% to 21,644 employer requests in August from 25,681 one year earlier, but rose 6.4% (unadjusted) in comparison with this past July.
