Spanish jobless claims up for third straight month
04 November 2010 @ 11:28

Spain's Labor Ministry says the number of people filing claims for unemployment benefits rose for a third straight month in October, by about 68,000.

The ministry said the 1.7 percent increase compared to September was felt strongest in the services sector and farming, in what is traditionally a bad month in Spain for job-seekers after the summer tourism rush.

The rise pushed the total number of people claiming unemployment benefits to 4,085,976.

The overall number of jobless in Spain, which includes those whose benefits have run out, is published separately and stood at 19.8 percent in the third quarter, downs slightly from the second quarter but still the worst rate in the eurozone.
