12 March 2013 @ 18:03

FOR every job that needs to be filled, there are 107 unemployed persons, research shows. It claims that a year on from the government's labour reform, economic activity in Spain has not improved and the jobless figures continue to rise. At present, there are six million people of working age on the dole and 16.1 million people registered on the Social Security system either as employed or self-employed, within a population of nearly 47 million people. In the meantime, though, over 20 trade fairs are travelling the country offering up to 1,000 jobs abroad, whilst Switzerland is actively seeking foreign doctors due to not having enough medically-qualified professionals in the country, and Panamá is looking for Spanish engineers.
