  1. The labour market in Wiesbaden seems to be quite stable compared to other parts of Germany where the unemployment rate is much higher. An average below 6% is therefore quite good, even it is not desirable to have an unemployment rate. Nevertheless the economies might improve in Wiesbaden as well and therefore the unemployment rate might even decline in the long run.

  2. In spring people have more possibilities to work, for example in an ice-cream parlour or an open air bath, but the negative aspect is that the unemployment rate increases once again after this season. The people who work seasonal should find a job for the other season as well. By reaching this, the unemployment rate decreases of long duration.
