(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis once again expressed his concern for those without work on Wednesday during his weekly General Audience.

The Archbishop of Potenza had come to the audience with a group of laid-off workers from Italy’s southern region of Basilicata.

“I hope that the grave economic situation affecting employment can find a positive solution through an incisive commitment by everyone to open paths of hope,” Pope Francis told them.

“We cannot let the unemployment rate grow higher,” he said.
