B2 essay: Unemployment

 

1.2 the unemployment. Unemployment (without the article.)

He have already shown how much(how important, how nice, how big, how long: we have how + adjctive to speak about the degree of the said adjective.) important the (there is no need for the article, as you are talking about all types of work, not a particular type.) work is for us. Your happiness, your stress level, your wealth and your relationships (the possessive adjective your doesn´t
have to be written, as the commas list things. The first “your” connects with all the other nouns.)
with your relatives and
friends, depends depend (there is more than one subject for this verb.) on the kind of job you have. To resume summarize (resume means continuar/reanudar. The word resumen means summary.) it, people can´t live healthily without a job. (work
is an uncountable noun and job is a countable noun. You never use an indefinite article a/an with the word work. But you have to use it before the noun job.)

Since the financial crisis of the (no need for the article before a year.) 2007 in Spain many people have lost their job. In those years, it was a big problem because the government didn’t think it was a deep crisis. With the (no article necessary.) time, the crisis became bigger and millions of jobrelated on to the (no article needed: construction in general, not a particular kind of construction.) constructions disappeared. Nowadays, the unemployment level is a drama (this could mean un teatroque no es real. The level is dramatic.), after rising for many years incredibly.

Fortunately when people lost lose (the present simple is required, as the situation is habitual and frequent. It is not limited to the past.) their job, they have several social and economical economic (economical means barato.) rights which can help them. When a worker has worked for enough time he has the right to receive the unemployment benefits. In some shameful cases, people receive those benefits although they have another kind of work. It is an important support for the unemployed people, and we must manage it very well.

Another important thing for people who don´t have not a skilled job is the minimum wage. The minimum wage is the minimum salary that must be earned by a person who has full time work. In Spain, the minimum salary is sis six hundred euros Euros approximately. It is a little small pay but fortunately the average wage in spain Spain is one thousand euros Euros aprox.
I read it few years ago and I guess that it is higher nowadays. I don’t know if it is related to the gross salary or net salary.

What can the unemployed people do if they can´t get a job? First of all, they can study more than they did. They can study a language or career do a degree but if they need money quickly, it is not a good idea. Secondly, they could start a business. Nowadays it is difficult to do that because you need money and getting a credit loan for from a bank is almost impossible. Maybe If I lost my job, I would try to run a business in on the net web, probably related to the virtual games. Thirdly, they can try to find a job abroad. I think that it is an interesting choice when you are young. However, if you have a family and children who depend on you, it is a difficult choice. On the other hand, the world is getting smaller, and the European Union is well communicated by train or by plain plane (plain means llano.). I have read that Asia is a great continent for people to go abroad to.

To say tell the true truth, being unemployed is terrible, but with courage and intelligence, brave people can succeed. I trust in (no need for the preposition. We trust something) that, at least.
