French unemployment climbed by 0.9 percent in November on the previous month, the 19th consecutive monthly increase, the labour ministry said on Thursday.

With another 29,300 more workers registered as jobless, that brought the overall number to 3.13 million.

Including those workers who are only working part-time, the monthly rise was 30,400, meaning an overall rise of 0.7 percent to a total of 4.61 million people in mainland France, the ministry added.
