52 year old Consuelo is unemployed as well as her 5 children who used to work as builders. In Espera, Andalucia, approximately 80% of inhabitants are currently unemployed because of the financial crisis. The town's economy moved from farming to construction at the beginning of the decade and now almost all the construction companies have closed their doors, as there are no property buyers. The situation is critical and some families have all their members unemployed and with serious problems to bring food to the table. As a result, the local council is giving temporal employment to Espera's residents in order to keep up with the crisis.
