AT the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in Spain, some 3.4 million workers were subject to ERTE (work furlough) but according to a statement by Social Security Minister Jose Luis Escriva by July 1 the figures had almost halved.

On that date, the number had reduced to 1.75 million workers and the numbers appeared to be dropping by around 5 per cent each week, helped by the fact that the Spanish Government is effectively paying compensation to companies to take workers back.
