MALLORCA has hit record numbers for employment.

Over half a million workers paid into the social security system in June, the highest number in history.

Meanwhile, there are less than 37,000 registered people on the dole.

The unemployment rate is lower than before the crash in 2008, something no other region in Spain has yet achieved.

The 568,689 people who are registered as working is expected to grow this month.

Island employment minister Iago Negueruela also highlighted that for the past two months, the number of full-time and permanent contracts have grown, while part-time and temporary contracts have fallen.

While good the figures don’t compare to Gibraltar, which has just announced a record of only 45 people on the dole.

Across Spain, the highest number of people on the dole is in Linares, in Jaén, and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in Cádiz, with 44.5% and 37.9% of people on the dole.

The areas with the highest employment are Pozuelo de Alarcón, in Madrid, and Sant Cugat del Vallès, in Barcelona, with the amount of people on the dole sitting at just 8% and 8.9% respectively.
