FIGURES based on data from the Spanish tax authorities have revealed the amount of money young people are earning.

The study reveals that, on average, a young person between the ages of 18 and 25 earns €440 a month equating to €5,280 annually and lower than the average across Spain.

Despite the fact that there have been many signs that the Spanish economy is improving – which has filtered through to the provinces – unemployment among the young up to 25-years-old is still 41 per cent, and when many do find work it is only part time.

In the first quarter of 2017, 51.60% of the 104,066 temporary contracts issued in Alicante province for the under 30s were for part-time work and mostly for four hours a day.  Many of the contracts only lasted for seven days.

In total, 113,228 contracts were signed for that age group of which only 9,172 were of permanent and indefinite.
