More and more Spanish housewives, many of whom have no professional qualifications and have never worked in their lives, are looking for jobs because their husbands and other family members have lost their jobs due to the current economic crisis, El Mundo reports.
â€œThey have something very goodâ€VbCrLf says Begona Guindel, regional director of Randstad Spain. â€œThey are very serious people, never miss a day at work, are willing to work part-time and adapt to anything. Very often they come to us with that profile and they end up with a full-time job.â€VbCrLf
