UNEMPLOYMENT has gone from a rate higher than 50 per cent to 10 per cent in a majority of areas in Mallorca.
Inca is the municipality that has seen the most positive economic reactivation, as it was also one of the towns in which a high number of people lost their jobs. Unemployment increased there more than 66 per cent in 2008, and 22.7 per cent more in 2009. Over those years, 1,654 people lost their jobs.
However, Inca’s capital Es Raiguer has seen a decrease of the unemployment rate by 13 per cent since December 2012.
Llucmajor, Manacor and Calvia had also entered their third year registering a reduction in unemployment, with an 11.7 per cent decrease in Llucmajor and Manacor and 11.1 per cent in Calvia, by the end of 2014.
Palma, the city with the biggest economically active population in the Islands, has also registered its third year of unemployment reductions, falling by 2.1 per cent in 2012, 5.2 per cent in 2013 and 7.8 per cent in 2014.
