For another month, the data recorded on the InfoJobs platform is in line with the figures published by Social Security and the Ministry of Labor in June. The Spanish labor market added 233,056 new social security affiliates and unemployment continues to fall for the fourth month in a row, recording another record low in the historic series. In this sense, the SEPE left 166,911 unemployed and closed the month above 3.6 million unemployed.

The labor market is therefore showing signs of recovery thanks to the summer season. However, as has happened historically, the hires of the last few months are temporary and respond to the increase in demand that accompanies the summer; the service, hotel and catering sectors, etc. They are a clear example.
