According to Eurostat, 50.5% of those younger than 25 in Spain are out of work and that is what is causing great concern to social organisations and the unions because all many are faced with this year are part time seasonal jobs or the prospect of having to look abroad for work which is happening and which is leading to a gradual brain drain.

Eurostat notes that unemployment increased throughout the Eurozone and European Union, up to 10.8% and 10.2%, respectively, with Spain registering the highest unemployment rate, of 23.6%.

The figures which relate to the month of February, show Spain is at the top of the list with 23.6%, followed by Greece (21%), and Portugal (15%).
Lowest on the list were Austria (4.2%), the Netherlands (4.9%), Luxembourg (5.2%) and Germany (5.7%). Out of the nearly 25 million unemployed in the European Union, 5.4 million are under 25.
