May generated 1,030 new unemployed in Madeira

Unemployment in Madeira is increasing considerably. In May, the official figures far exceeded the barrier of 17 thousand unemployed. Last month, according to DIÁRIO, it was found that 17,465 people were out of work in the Region, 1,030 (+6.3%) more than in April and 1,722 (+10.9%) compared to the same period last year.

Thus, the worst expectations are confirmed in view of the side effects caused by the covid-19 pandemic, and the rate increase is expected in the coming months. Compared to the rest of the country, Madeira registered the second highest percentage in terms of variation in relation to April, being surpassed only by Lisbon and Vale do Tejo. Compared to the same month of 2019, only the Azores achieved a better percentage in the national panorama.

If we compare with the month of March, there is an increase of 1,819 in the number of unemployed in the Region. If we go to February, the difference is then 1.875.
