In many countries, the difficult labour market conditions resulting from the economic crisis have been persistent also in metropolitan areas.

In Athens and Thessaloniki (the two metropolitan areas of Greece), the unemployment rate increased on average 5 percentage points annually between 2008 and 2012, reaching 25% of unemployed in 2012 ().
