The Government removes iron from the unemployment data and highlights that employment continues to be created


The economic clouds and the stoppage of activity During the third quarter of the year, it has left 60,800 unemployed between July and September, compared to the more than 127,000 in which it was reduced in the same period of 2021 or before or the decrease in the quarter prior to the summer. The occupation only increases, as highlighted by the latest Active Population Survey (EPA) in the third quarter, in just 77,700 people in the third quarter, four times less than a year ago. The data does not give an option for optimism, but the Government has tried to play down the fall, in a context of economic slowdown, highlighting that despite everything, jobs continue to be created.

Thus, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation indicated shortly after the EPA data was released, that the quarter referred to has been marked by the deterioration of the external environment and, despite everything, the Spanish economy has continued to create jobs, exceeding 20.5 million employed workers, “the highest figure since 2008 and close to the historical record of 2007”.

He assures that it should be noted that in the quarter there has been a strong increase in the active population, up to a historical maximum of 23.5 million, “which reflects the confidence of workers in finding a job and explains the slight rise in unemployment. In the last 12 months, unemployment has been reduced by 436,500 people, it concludes. In addition, he insists that the “good progress of the working market has made it possible to improve the situation of households and bring the number of households with all their members unemployed to below one million and increase the number of households with all their members employed by almost 500,000 in the last year”.

José Luis Escrivá stressed that “Spain has the capacity to create jobs in very difficult international conditions”

The positive balance of the Economy was similar to that stated by the Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations, José Luis Escrivá, shortly before. Escrivá outlined “the ability to create jobs in Spain in “very difficult international conditions” due to the impact of the war in Ukraine. “We are the country in Europe that is clearly creating the most jobs since the war,” said Escrivá, while ruling out go into more assessments because they still didn’t know the EPA results.

The head of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration argued that the unemployment rate, which has risen, “sometimes also reflects the expectations of more people who want to work and did not express this desire before”. For this reason, Escrivá has defended that the growth rate of employment is “the most important thing” because it indicates the net new jobs that have been created, and has highlighted that Catalonia It is above the national average in this area.
