Life for the young in Spain

It is hard for young people here in Spain to find jobs. As a result, many are still living at home into their 30s.

The official unemployment rate among the under-30s is 34.4%, but the reality is that only two out of every 10 under-24s is working, and more than 55% of them are on short-term contracts, while 60% are earning less than €1,000 a month.

Many feel forced to move abroad to seek employment. Spain’s Youth Council says 500,000 young people have left Spain to look for work since 2013.
