Four million unemployed, 400,000 more people since the pandemic began

The COVID19 pandemic has significantly affected the labor market; Only after the decree of the State of Alarm in March 2020, 900,000 jobs were destroyed. One year later, there are still 401,000 more unemployed and 743,628 people are still in ERTE, not forgetting the 470,000 self-employed workers who have stopped working.


In the month of March, 18.9 million contributors were registered, a figure that is still far from reaching the employment levels prior to the start of the health crisis. At Fundación Senara we continue to develop projects aimed at improving the employability of people actively seeking employment who are in a vulnerable situation. Through ‘Making the Future Possible’, a program financed by the “la Caixa” Foundation and the Community of Madrid -convocated by irpf-, socio-labor insertion itineraries are carried out adapted to the needs of each user. In addition, training courses with professional practices in companies are included. If you are interested in participating and want to request more information, write to
