Spain’s jobless now relying on pensioners to survive

“After a career spent repairing trains, Francisco Marcos Gallego once thought he and his wife would end their days in comfort. Instead they are struggling to support their unemployed son and his children.  The couple must use their combined monthly pension of 1,300 euros ($1,760) to help feed their son Miguel, 49, who has been out of full time work since 2009, and the teenaged children who still live with him.  Still suffering the effects of the economic slump triggered by the collapse of a property boom in 2008, more and more Spanish families are relying on their retired parents to survive as their unemployment checks run out and mortgage bills pile up.”
