Historic Unemployment: Five Million Workers “Hibernated”
“Spain is in a state of alarm, but the labor market is one step ahead: it faces an unknown state of exception, at least since the Civil War. Even the great financial crisis , which hit the labor market in 2009 with a never-before-seen shake, did not cause as much damage in terms of employment as the Covid-19. In fact, forecasts suggest that in just half a month, the virus has damaged the labor market more than the crisis in 2009 as a whole.”larazon.es
14 “But if you will not listen to me and will not do all these commandments, 15 if you spurn my statutes, and if your soul abhors my rules, so that you will not do all my commandments, but break my covenant, 16 then I will do this to you: I will visit you with panic, with wasting disease and fever that consume the eyes and make the heart ache. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17 I will set my face against you, and you shall be struck down before your enemies. Those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when none pursues you.”
— Leviticus 26: 14-17
