The ministry's report makes a distiction between employees and the self employed, which in April represented 82.7 and 17.3 per cent of the total respectively. During that same period, hotel workers represented 53.2 per cent of the total, while the remainder worked in the bar and restaurant sector.
The month on month differences attributed to the difference in date of Easter when taken as a whole, do not correspond with the difference if restaurants and hotels are considered separately. In hostelry, for example, jobs dropped by 0.2 per cent in January, 3.4 per cent in February, 0.9 per cent in March and 2..7 per cent in April.
In the restaurant sector, however, jobs increased each month, by 1.9 per cent in January, 0.9 per cent in February, 5.4 per cent in March and 0.2 per cent in April, the report said. The summer season is now in full swing, with most beaches packed to capacity with sun worshippers.
The beaches are even more crowded at weekends, when tourists are joined by residents who are at work during the week.
