SERIOUS DRAMA: Job seekers wait their turn in an Andalusian Job Centre.

SINCE the economic crisis broke out mid-2007, unemployment has increased by 137 per cent in the Malaga Province. Latest figures show 192,097 people listed at the job centre INEM as unemployed, of which nearly a third has lost their unemployment benefits. 

In an attempt to soothe this situation, several months ago the Government launched an initiative offering a €400 monthly aid and job-seek workshops. Socialist PSOE councillor for Malaga, Miguel Angel Heredia has asked the government to ease the stringent requirements for this aid which currently leaves out unemployed families with only one child or those who worked on a temporary contract.
