Spain Adds Jobs

Spanish unemployment fell by nearly 8% in 2015 from the previous year, the labor ministry said on Tuesday, AFP reported. The number of jobless dropped by 354,203 to 4.04 million, the largest annual decline ever. The labor ministry does not publish an unemployment rate, but national statistics office Ine put the rate at 20.18% in the third quarter. “The trend is very good,” Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy told Cope radio. “What we need to do now is to persevere.” In December alone, the number of jobless fell by 55,790, mostly thanks to temporary services jobs created during the festive season.
