PARIS (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande said on Thursday he was sticking to a target of reversing a growing unemployment trend by year-end, on the day when data showed that the number of jobless hit a fresh all-time high in April.
Speaking at a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Hollande said: "Despite this data, despite what it means for many French people individually or for their family, I maintain the goal of reversing the unemployment trend by year-end."
