Santomera unemployment down 3.6% in May (05/06/2017)

The numbers of the unemployment of May returned to bring good news for the municipality.

The number of unemployed fell this month in 37 people, representing a decrease of 3.6%, and stands at 1,018 people, very close to the psychological barrier of a thousand.

After two years with a new direction in front of the City Council, the balance is more than positive: "327 people have abandoned the unemployment lists, which means an accumulated decrease of more than 24%." One out of four unemployed people at the beginning of this Legislature has returned to work again ", emphasizes the Councilor for Employment and Training, Victor Egío.

"This demonstrates the commitment of this government team in the fight against unemployment, the biggest problem for citizens," he adds.

The figures are also positive when compared to the unemployment rate recorded in other municipalities in the region.

Santomera, with 9.54%, is significantly better than neighboring towns with more resources, such as Murcia (10.93%) or Alcantarilla (14.42%), both ruled by the PP.

Our municipality also improves in more than one point the rate of unemployment registered in the whole of the Region of Murcia, where on average reaches 10.85%.

Another factor to take into account is that the decline in unemployment in a municipality like Santomera is not so linked to the hotel industry and tourism fluctuations, so everything indicates that this improvement will be sustained over time.

This has contributed to the continuous supply of training offered both from the Center for Local Development (Cedes) and from the Youth Guarantee program, which has multiplied its enrollment.

"Today is a day to thank the work of all this great team," maintains Egío.

"The challenge now," municipal sources say, "is that this growth reaches the world and that the employment that is generated is increasingly higher quality."
