Ten per cent jump up is pretty scary and would hurt any economy, no matter how big it is.

The numbers of unemployment on the island of Fuerteventura this past February are also positive in relation to the previous month, following the trend of the numbers of the Canarian community.

In this way, in Fuerteventura, unemployment does not grow in February, which amounts to 9,559 unemployed compared to 9,860 in January. The trend is positive this month although February is not a good month for the labour market, with 301 fewer people unemployed than the previous month. On the other hand we are still worse than in February 19, with 220 more unemployed than that month of the previous year.

In this sense, the truth is that it has not been as general, since both in the Canary Islands and in the rest of Spain the improvement in employment has been significant, according to data from the Canary Employment Observatory.

In fact, in the Canary Islands unemployment fell by 3,327 people while at a national level it fell by 19,043 people, with unemployment standing at 3,246,047 unemployed.

Not a huge surprise. I feel like this island relies more heavily on tourism than the others, which have bigger native populations and towns requiring more workers even without tourists, so they will be less affected by the lockdown. Hopefully, we will be ready to bounce back once then lockdown is lifted and tourism resumes again— I know we're all concerned that tourism won't pick up again for a long time, but I've seen so many people worrying that their holidays in late summer being cancelled that it seems like plenty of people are still very willing to travel if they are allowed. Once the bans are lifted, I'm sure it won't be too long before people are wanting to go on holidays again.

A dreadful immediate outlook for so many. I just sincerely hope that those that need it will get the financial help which they will inevitably need.

The island of Fuerteventura ended the month of April with 13,444 unemployed people, some 2,383 more than in the month of March, representing an increase of 21.5 percent.

Fuerteventura is the second island with the highest percentage increase in the number of unemployed, only behind Lanzarote, which also experienced a significant increase of 25.5 percent.

Compared to April last year, the increase is notable: in Fuerteventura there are 4,346 more unemployed, which translates into a 47.7 percent increase in unemployment.

Fuerteventura is also the second island where recruitment has decreased the most, with a drop of 74.7 percent.

Thus, in the last month barely 614 contracts have been registered, some 1,817 less than in March and 3,047 less than in April last year.
