The service sector led job creation thanks to a strong summer season in Spain with tourism returning to pre-pandemic levels.
The highest number of people unemployed in July were from the Services Sector.
The National Institute of Statistics said in a statement that just over a million people lost their jobs during the quarter.
The total number of people officially registered as out of work in the Balearics stood at 38,866 at the end of May.
"We are talking about miserable salaries and people still being unable to make ends meet."
The UGT union is calling for there to be more "quality employment".
The tourism ministry was relishing the opportunity to add significantly to government coffers through revenue from fines, the Canaries joined forces with the Balearics to pressurise Madrid into giving them better deals, unemployment was up and Palma town hall admitted it had a problem with its management.
Compared with 2015, though, the unemployment rate looks rather better, as there were 10,337 fewer people on the register.
Unemployment across the country is the lowest for six years, but as in the Balearics jobs are often short-term and seasonal.
There is too much dependence on the tourism sector, which doesn't create quality employment.
The unemployment figures will give the acting prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, a boost going into the June general election.
Though unemployment was down in eleven regions, nationwide there was a rise in the February rate.
The number unemployed in January was over 1% lower than in December, with 811 leaving the unemployment register.
The actual number of registered unemployed people in the Balearics, as of November, was 77,187.
Jaume Font remarked that recent summer seasons have all finished with conclusions of having been the best ever, yet "unemployment continues all the same".
Unemployment in the Balearics rose by over 19% in October.
The social income will ensure that all families in the Balearics are able to cover the cost of basic necessities.
Across Spain as a whole, unemployment was up in September by 0.64%, giving a total unemployed figure of 4,094,042.
