Spain's jobless total declines
Text size Aa Aa

The number of people out of work in Spain fell again for the third straight month, but most of the decline was linked to training programmes and billions in government money being spent on public works to help the beleaguered construction industry.

Spain’s jobless total fell almost 21,000 in July, but it still has the highest rate in the European Union with just over 3.5 million people claiming unemployment benefit.
