Spanish young people cannot afford homes

This July 2016 video says about itself:


CNN’s Al Goodman shows a whole generation lost in Spain due to high unemployment.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

More and more Spanish people in their twenties still live with their parents. The percentage of 16 to 29-year-olds living at home rose to no less than 81 per cent in the second part of 2018: a record.

The main reasons for continuing to live at home are the unaffordable owner-occupied houses and the rental properties that often cost more than a monthly salary.

According to NOS correspondent Rop Zoutberg, it is anything but new that so many young people continue to live at home. “Only now it is extremely long, but that can be explained because they have little money and there is a lot of unemployment in Spain.” …

Taking a holiday job in summer, as many Dutch young people do, is often not an option. “These are hardly there for young people.”

So, the austerity ‘medicine’, prescribed for Spain by the European Union and right-wing Spanish politicians, really works … NOT!

Like it also really ‘works’ in the Argentina of right-wing Panama papers scandal president Macri … NOT!
