Spain -New jobs are insecure and uncertain -May 04, 2015

Majority of jobs that have been created in recent years are low-skilled and short-term lasting for a period of just seven days, many of these in the hotel industry; adding to the insecure nature of the newly created posts.

Figures released by the Ministry of Employment show that the majority of jobs that have been created in recent years are low-skilled and short-term. The most common job found in the first quarter of 2015 was agricultural labouring work, with over half a million people finding employment in this low-skilled, insecure sector. The next most commonly found jobs were in the service industry as waiters and cleaners. A quarter of jobs lasted for a period of just seven days, many of these in the hotel industry, adding to the insecure nature of the newly created posts. Only 6.7% of contracts, created in the first quarter of 2015, were permanent.
