The question “why do people move to Spain” is a very interesting one because literally millions of people have moved there over the last few decades. However, interestingly in our online poll the subject of moving to Spain attracted fewer votes than for [...]

Number one in the list of reasons to move to Spain appears to be employment, attracting over 28% of the vote. When you take into account the ongoing problems with the worldwide economy and the European economy particular it may well surprise people to learn that employment in Spain still seems to be “fairly easy”. Whether this interest in employment in Spain is because of European community regulations and internal trade is debatable but whatever the reason there is no doubt that job prospects are seen by many to be better than other areas of Europe and the wider world.
quite the opposite of what we know to be true......unless those who answered the poll had jobs already lined up for them as we reccommend..............in which case we're doing something right:)

I started reading, got up to the line you've highlighted employment in Spain still seems to be “fairly easy" and stopped reading.
Why would I want to spend time reading an article that hasn't been researched, does not give a real picture and seems to be written by someone who has no contact with life in Spain?

But you've got to interprete info, haven't you? Just because X% said they wanted to go to Spain to look for work, it doesn't mean that work is "fairly easy" to find, does it? That might be what the UK population believe, much to our disbelief, but it doesn't make it true, does it? Right now people have got more prospects of finding work in Greece rather than Spain, but...

agree again - it's all a matter of interpretation

I suspect your point in your first post on this thread is the most accurate - it
seems to be written by someone who has no contact with life in Spain
