|Spaniards signing on the dole !|
.In January 2011 (just over a year ago)
A group of jobless Spaniards tried to form the country’s longest-ever unemployment line in the capital of Madrid.
With more than 4 million people unemployed at the time in Spain, the unemployed tried to form the longest unemployment queue to set a world record, around 5 km long.
It's a form of protest against the government's recent benefits cuts for the long term unemployed. A huge number of long term unemployed now receive nothing in the form of any benefits at all.
