Spanish Unemployment Fell By 129,378 In May.
THE number of unemployed registered in the public employment registers (SEPE) decreased by 129,378 people in May, leaving the number of unemployed at 3,781,250, thus marking the largest drop in 20 years.
This reduction is the lowest recorded in a month of May since statistical records were kept in 1996, two decades ago. This is the third monthly decline that occurs in the province. Employment began to regain its pulse in March when it broke a seven-month rise and fell by 4,571 people.
Of the total number of people who are without a job in the province of Malaga, 79,950 are men and 112,318 women, so the inequality gap still exists. By age group, there are a total of 17,949 unemployed under 25 years of age. Tarifa in Southern Spain recorded the largest decrease in percentage for one more month (-10.9 per cent).
