MADRID, Oct 3 (APP/Xinhua): The number of people registered as
unemployed in Spain rose by 27,858 people from August to September, according to data published on Tuesday by the Spanish Ministry of
Employment and Social Security.
The total number of unemployed people stood at 3.4 million in the
ninth month of the year, which also meant an 8.34 percent fall
year-on-year, 310,115 fewer jobless people when compared with
September, 2016.
September is traditionally a month when unemployment rises due to the
end of the tourist season in Spain, where companies have to take on more workers to face demand, especially in the services sector.
