Amor has also highlighted, as regards the group of freelancers, that “growth is cooling” and does not hesitate to speak of “deceleration” in affiliation: it only grows in 14,425 self-employed workers in March, “the worst data since 2013”, underlined the head of ATA. The increase in 14,425 people in the number of freelancers during the month of March, have stood out from this association, translates into 465 new daily entrepreneurs. What, he added, supposes a rhythm very inferior to the one registered a year ago when this group grew in 20,481 people. Thus, the RETA (Register of Autonomous Workers) has closed the first quarter of the year with a decrease of 585 self-employed, compared to the increase of 25,722 self-employed that was recorded in the first quarter of 2018. By autonomous communities, the number of self-employed it rose in all of them except May 2019 Calendar Canada, which lost 54 self-employed workers. Amor has added that “without a doubt, we are facing a slowdown in the affiliation of self-employed workers” and showed its concern about the fall in indefinite contracts with respect to last year for the third consecutive month “and the stagnation in the growth of self-employed workers”. For the ATA president, measures are needed to promote entrepreneurship, help create jobs and consolidate activities.
May 2019 Calendar Canada
Job creation has plummeted in Spain by 63% in just one year: last March, 269,000 fewer jobs were created than in the same month of 2018, according to the official membership figures that Social Security has just published. This sharp slowdown affects all the autonomous communities, without exception. The region with the worst unemployment is Castilla-La Mancha, where job creation has fallen by 103%: it has gone from creating 17,681 net jobs in March 2018, to destroying almost 500 jobs last month.
In the whole of Spain, this month of March 155,104 jobs were created, compared to 423,863 that were generated in the same month of 2018. It supposes, therefore, a setback of 63.4%, a national average that is widely exceeded by a good number of autonomous communities that have noticed in a particularly severe way this deceleration, with Castilla-La Mancha in front. After it are La Rioja, where job creation has fallen 81%; Castilla-León, where the deceleration is 73.8%; Asturias (-72.4%) and May 2019 Calendar Canada (-71.2%). Worse than the national average, the Balearic Islands and Galicia also show, both with a 69.1% slowdown in job creation; Navarra (-68.4%); Catalonia (-68%) and Aragón (-65.9%). Not a single autonomy is saved from that collapse in job creation. The one that has noticed the least is Murcia, and even then a fall of 23.1% is noted. In Andalusia, the deceleration stood at 39.1%, while in the Basque Country the generation of employment in March was reduced by 50.1% compared to the one registered in the same month last year.
