AFP - South Korea's unemployment rate fell in September to a seasonally adjusted 2.7 percent, led by new jobs in service industries, state data showed Wednesday.
The latest jobless rate compared with 3.0 percent reported in August and 2.9 percent in September of last year, Statistics Korea said.
The health and social welfare service sector added 172,000 jobs, up 12 percent from a year earlier, while the restaurant industry employed an extra 83,000 people, up 4.3 percent, over the same period.
The total number of employed people also rose by 463,000 to reach 25.46 million in September -- the biggest on-year gain for 12 months.
But the jobless rate among those fresh out of college -- aged 25 to 29 -- was higher at 7.7 percent, compared to 7.6 percent in August and 6.7 percent a year ago.

Meanwhile America’s unemployment rate is about 3 times that.
And we import.
We need to bring back American industry. Now.
Wonder how much we are still sending to them?
Pray America is Waking Up
its all those kpop bands!
we still send aid to China which does not count as debt payments!!
China’s unemployment rate is lower than ours.
Further their government is becoming anti-US.
Our debt is 17 trillion dollars.
BRING BACK US INDUSTRY.
nobody is stopping you from building industry here, except taxes, regulations and stuff
I would state our government is at least partially at fault, for not taxing imports.
We are really, really being stupid.
Our government is fully responsible for driving away the businesses in the first place
Well obviously there’s something we agree on.
This is becoming more important, by the day.
What do we do?
The current situation is handing the future to communists in China.
With a population 4 or 5 times our own, that matters a great deal.
This is not something to mess around with, or make jokes about.
We need to bring back American businesses somehow.
We need to kill North Korea’s leader, and hire South Korea’s.
yes...it was treachery to not bomb the hell out of the Chinese and win back all of Korea. Truman blew it big time.
