Rajoy’s Rivals Try To Downgrade Spain’s Success In Creating Jobs

Fernando Barciela | Spanish unemployment fell again in November, reversing a three-month upward trend. Last month, 27,000 fewer people were registered as jobless than in October, taking the total number of unemployed to 4.15 million. This is good news, given that at the peak of Spain’s economic crisis, the jobless rate reached a record 26.9%.  There has also been a rise in Social Security affiliations, which increased from 16.3% in 2013 to 17.2% in October 2015.
