BACK TO WORK: Record fall in unemployment

LABOUR reforms aimed at lowering the country’s unemployment level are preventing Spaniards from getting full time jobs.

The number of part time jobs is on the rise, with 1.75 million people working limited hour contracts ‘involuntarily’.

A new report shows Spain has the highest number of part-time workers who want full-time jobs.

The report shows that 64% of part-time Spanish workers would rather have full-time jobs.

A total of 15% of Spain’s workforce is on limited hour contracts, representing 2.8 million people, an increase of 750,000 since labour reforms came into play six years ago.
