Japan's jobless rate goes up
Tokyo: The unemployment rate in Japan increased 0.1 percent from the previous month to 4.2 percent in December 2012, according to data released by the government.

The rise was due to the global economic slowdown which made the manufacturers cut their employees.

The number of employees in the manufacturing industry fell 350,000 to 9.98 million amid weak export and industrial output, marking the lowest number since 1961, said the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
