October rise for unemployment in Malaga

MALAGA has seen a 3.1 percent rise in unemployment figures in the month of October, according to data released by the Ministry of Employment.

According to reports, the reason for the rise may be to the gradual completion of summer contracts in the Services sector which has led to 4,682 new job seekers.

Despite these figures, unemployment in Malaga stands at 153,764 people, a decrease of 8% compared to the figures of 2016 at this time of year.

At national level, the total number of unemployed reached the end of October the figure of 3,467,026 unemployed , reportedly the lowest level in the last eight years.
