    The number of people out of work in France has risen to its highest in 14-years.

    The pressure is now President Francois Hollande to stem the jobless tide.

    Data shows that the number of registered unemployed rose in October by 45,400 to reach 3.103 million.

    Unemployment has been rising in the country for the last 18 months and is now at its highest level since April 1998.
