Recession Robs Spain's Youth Of Jobs And Hope

Recommended Posts

Thanks for repiaring the link - I don't know what happened to my cut and paste! The article is a complete tragedy for a whole generation. I'm friends with a family whose son works as a trainee pilot for free and whose eldest daughter has international awards in marketing but can't find any work whatsoever.

Mark, am I right in thinking that you cannot be unemployed in Spain until you have been employed?

Correct. If you had a permanent job, you get up to a maximum of 18 months (recently extended by 6 months due to the crisis) unemployment benefit at a rate dependent on previous salary. If you are self employed like me, you get sfa no matter how long you have been paying into the system.

The worst thing for the youngsters is the temporary contracts where they are used and abused for 6 months and then replaced by other desperate people. As it said in the story, people in their 30s are having to return to live with mum and dad and as the crisis

worsens, most have never had the opportunity to live away in the first place apart from university. It's going to get hot and I don't just mean the temperature!
