Third of Andalucia lives in poverty

A THIRD of Andalucians are living below the poverty line, according to a new survey.

The Caritas study deemed poverty in Spain to be ‘wider, more intense and more chronic than ever before’.

The report insisted that the salary difference between rich and poor was ‘threatening to polarise society’. Those most affected are young couples and families.

Poverty in Andalucia is estimated at between 30 and 35 per cent, with a national average rate of almost 22 per cent.

  1. May we know what the “Poverty Line” is ? In Britain the socialists defined it as less than half of the average wage, which means there is constantly a “poor class” as is demanded by tradition socialist thinking, even if they all have houses washing machines, carpets, TVs and cars.
