As the summer months are almost forgotten and we head towards the winter, it is often inevitable that unemployment will increase as seasonal workers become surplus to requirement, but that trend in increased unemployment is not apparent in some areas of the Vega Baja.

Unemployment across the Vega Baja increased by 129 people in October, with 33.07% of the population now out of work.

However, the seasonal expectations of the service industry were overtaken once again by other sectors, with 174 construction workers losing their jobs in October, 100 agricultural workers and another 70 in industry. In fact, the service sector generated 494 new jobs, offsetting those who have lost work.

According to the employment agency SERVEF, Torrevieja has seen the largest increase in unemployment, with 417 registered workers now losing their jobs. Guardamar del Segura was in second place with 86 new unemployed people, then Formetera with 12.

However, the opposite happened in Orihuela once again, where unemployment fell by 186 people in October, as was the case in Pilar de la Horadada, where 87 people found work, then Callosa de Seguar with 64 and Catral with 56.

By gender, 218 women lost their jobs compared with 89 men who have found employment in October.
