Wonderful statistics! Of course they do not include the women forced to stay at home to be slave to household and husband and forced to be bearer of at least 3 children!

There is a big big hidden unemployment in Turkey as you also could see in e.g. Greece. First example: a post office: 8 employed out of which you only need 3 of the employees. Banks, municipalities the same story. So the "unemployment bubble" is at least 25 percent. Second example: carpentershop/company: dozens of 'eleman" are working there without sufficient education and wages. The 'patron" does not charge any KDV and in this manner he can "employ" his staff of youngsters. Another bubble.
