jobless rate fell to 25.9 percent in August from a downwardly revised 26.1
percent rate in July as the country's six-year recession eases, Greek statistics
agency ELSTAT said on Thursday. Greece
August's reading was the lowest since August 2012 when unemployment stood at 25.5 percent. The record high was set in September 2013, when unemployment hit 28 percent.
