| Today Headlines | News Today

Spain will soon start paying young people nearly $ 300 to gently get them out of their parents’ homes. Pedro Sánchez, president of Spain, announced the proposal to give $ 289 to young Spaniards to encourage them to rent their own houses. The incentive is part of Spain’s budget proposal for 2022 and will need to be approved by parliament before it can start.

Spaniards between 18 and 35 years old who earn less than 23,725 euros per year will be eligible for the plan. Some of the most vulnerable families will receive additional subsidies that will cover up to 40 percent of their rental commitments.

Spain’s youth unemployment level is the highest in the region, with 38 percent of the population out of work.

Spain is not the only country where children have not moved or have not even moved with their parents as a result of the loss of disposable income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

An analysis by the Pew Research Center found that in June 2020, more young people were living in their childhood homes than independently for the first time since the Great Depression in the 1920s.
