JOBLESS FIGURES STILL RISING

According to the National Employment Institute (INEM), more than 4,579 people in Malaga province lost their jobs during the month of September, the highest figure registered for that month since INEM records began in 1996. Just over 30,000 people have lost their jobs since last November, bringing the total number of unemployed to 115,895. The worst hit sectors are services – that is, hotel and restaurant workers – which accounts for just over 56% of the unemployed, and construction, which accounts for just over 25%.
