BUSINESSES could have a new reason to employ young people after the government proposed plans to pay part of their wage.
The Junta wants to create a new job pool for university and professional training graduates and pay €400 of their salary if they are hired.
The incentive is part of the government’s €167.5million youth employment plan which has already been approved.
It applies to qualified people up to the age of 35.
The Junta’s €500million employment package hopes to create 42,000 new jobs this year.
Spain’s youth unemployment rate is currently at a record high of 55%, the second highest in Europe following Greece.
