DOZENS of months of falling unemployment numbers attest to the fact that the Balearic Islands are leading Spain into recovery.
The number of unemployed residents registered in June decreased by 3,324 people, a 5.65 per cent drop in the number of people out of work if compared with the previous month, and places the number of jobless at 55,508 people, according to the data released by the Employment and Social Security Ministry.
With these numbers, the Balearic Islands once again have the biggest drop in unemployment of any autonomous community in Spain.
The islands’ figures are way better than the average, the national reduction amounting to 2.25 per cent this month.
The year-on-year figures for the Balearics display 7,070 fewer jobless people than June 2014, a decrease of 11.3 per cent, and the third biggest decrease in Spain, only beaten by Cantabria (-12 per cent) and Castilla y Leon (-11.7).
Since November 2012, the unemployment rate has not failed to decrease, reaching 32 consecutive months of reductions.
