Unemployment figures show a slight fall for the first time in the economic crisis

In May, it could have just been a blip, but it has happened in June as well: for the first time for a very long while, unemployment has come down very slightly in the Canaries, and in Spain as a whole.  Figures show that nationally, unemployment dropped by 1.53%, leaving 3,564,889 people unemployed. Here in the Canaries, the drop was 0.54%, meaning 1,336 fewer people out of work over the last month, though specifically in Tenerife, it rose very slightly, by 0.07%, or 80 individuals. Overall, there are 248,325 in the islands looking for employment. Bad enough, but at least there are the very slightest and most tentative indications of a possible recovery.  El Dia
