Spain – who’s to blame?

line

I’ve noticed a blame game going on in one of the online comments sections…as in, who’s to blame for the Spain’s youth unemployment crisis.   There are fingers pointing at socialist policies, unions, etc.   It’s worth pointing out that the restrictive contract system has been in place for 30 years.  It has been sustained by both conservative and left leaning governments.

Its historical roots can be traced to the fascist dictatorship that ruled Spain from 1939 to the mid 1970′s, as Prof Gayle Allard explains.
