Re: Re: Spanish unemployment – scary


Charlie, it is really funny (sad โ— ) to see how the spanish media try to make a positive out of a negative. Unemployment in Marbella has gone down…seasonally adjusted it has gone up! Traditionally March is the time for hiring to start the season, ie. unemployment drops, and rises again in September. According to the Sur unemployment has dropped in Mรกlaga province…seasonally adjusted it has rose75,000 ๐Ÿ˜•

We have been reading various tourism figures in the spanish press, all positive according to the headlines (would take a statistician to get the bottom line ๐Ÿ˜† ). Now we read that actually hotel occupation was down 11% for the first quarter.
