Spain -Unemployment hits 26% -January 24, 2014

New unemployment figures from the National Statistic Institute (INE) show the country's unemployment climbed back up to 26.03% at the end of 2013, up from 25.98% three months earlier. The reported fragile growth has had no positive effect on employment after six straight years of job destruction. Some 198.900 jobs disappeared in 2013, and 3.5 million have vanished since the country's crisis began in 2008. New jobs are of poor quality and hours of overtime have increased.
