Spain At A Glance....Unemployment

Over 400000 people have been added to the ranks of the unemployed in Spain in the last 12 months. Although the construction slump accounts for much of the rise, other sectors are also losing jobs. June is traditionally a month when unemployment is expected to fall here, but not this year.

I wonder if they are still counting me?
I got laid off from the construction company I was working for in in Madrid, but just recently got a temporary job working from home for an 'internet' company.
The unemployment checks have stopped, though.
