German unemployment declines in June

Germany's unemployment rate edged down to 8.1 percent in June, according to official figures released Tuesday.
The Federal Labor Agency said the unadjusted jobless rate was down from 8.2 percent in May. The total number of people registered as unemployed fell by 48,000 from May to 3.41 million.
The agency said German companies' use of short work programs to protect jobs during the downturn had kept unemployment numbers from rising.
