Esta mañana iba en el coche y he podido escuchar en NPR News (radio publica) esta noticia sobre el paro español. No tengo tiempo de traducirla, espero que a nadie le importe que esté en ingles y si alguien tiene tiempo (yo ahora no) que la traduzca:

No sé como ven nuestra situación en el resto de paises, seria interesante saberlo. Noticia escrita:
A few years ago, Spain's fast-expanding economy was creating a third of all new jobs in the European Union.
But in the past year, about 1 out of every 2 layoffs in Europe has been in Spain, where the unemployment rate has soared to more than 17 percent.
Amid the global recession in Spain, losing a job can be a catastrophe — or it can be like hitting the jackpot.
Temporary Workers Hit Hard
Ainhoa Balsera, 30, used to work as a cleaning lady. On a recent day, she visited an unemployment office in the Madrid suburb of Alcobendas.
"It used to take less than 15 days to find a job," she says. "Now, there's nothing. Things are bad."
Her last job was at a public school, which had just been renovated. The work lasted a month and a half.
Now, she is collecting a monthly welfare check of $550.
"I'm surviving, barely, but I have no alternative," says Balsera, who has a 9-year-old daughter.
Her story is typical in Spain, where 4 million people are now out of work. Most of them are female and young, and many are immigrants. For those under 25, the jobless rate is nearly 32 percent. Many people who had jobs in construction or the service industries during the housing boom are now unemployed and get minimum benefits.
