Spaniards resort to self-employment

As big companies shed jobs amid high unemployment, more individuals are relying on their own ingenuity to earn a living.

    The latest unemployment figures for the eurozone have just been released. It hit a record high of 11.9 percent in January - which is nearly 19 million people out of work.

    In Spain more than one in four people is without a job and, now, more people are choosing to work for themselves.
