'I'm happy for all those thousands of people who have found jobs in recent months. Sometimes they were there to wait a long time, but their wait is rewarded, 'says Asscher. 'I hope that in the coming months, many more people can come to work. I want to do everything. '

However are still more than six in ten unemployed people over 45 twelve months or longer looking for work. Looking at the total number of unemployed is that four out of ten.
