Spaniards seek jobs in Latin America

Economic recession forces thousands to seek work in countries like Peru, once deemed less lucrative.

    For decades many Latin Americans have migrated to Europe to search for better job opportunities. But with the economic recession and a record unemployment rate in Spain, thousands of Spaniards are now seeking work in South American countries, including Peru.

    Spanish companies are also increasing investments in the region.
