Balearic President, Jose Ramon Bauza, who is standing for re-election next  month, was quick to point out yesterday that the jobless rate had been falling for the last 29 months.
He claimed that his government´s economic policies were clearly working and that the local economy was healing at a satisfactory rate after years of recession.
But union leaders rounded on the  President saying that there were still 75,000 people without employment in the islands. They also accused  Bauza of creating record levels of poverty.
But business leaders said that the rate of unemployment in the islands was now close to its pre-recession levels.
