The number of workers who could not find jobs rose by 29,300 in the month, a 0.9 percent gain over October, Radio France Internationale reported Friday.
The number fails to account for people working part time, but looking for full-time work. With those included, the number of people looking for work rose to nearly 5 million.
In France, 10.7 percent of those considered active in the work force -- those looking for work or working -- were unemployed in the third quarter.
