The information was revealed by the Minister for Labour and Economy, Joaquin Perez Rey who confirmed that the jobless total has reached 3.89 million which does not include more than 750,000 on state supported furlough.

Whilst accepting that this was the worst figure for four years, he indicated his believe that provided the pandemic is controlled many will find work in 2021.
