Writing

Original:

The economy in Spain has been falling since 2009, until now I didn’t see great changes about it. When the economy have started to decline, a cycle was formed witch was impossible to exit from it. I had been listening in this years that many people like foreigners from Latin America returned because in they homes the men was the must important source of income, them had worked in the construction area and this area was the first one that fell. Also many Spanish people left the country searching another opportunity because in that years the business owners didn’t want to recognized the professional title the employees or the number of years worked in they company, so they took advantage of this situation and offered unskilled works or very low salaries. Now I has seen Spain grow a slow pace since this financial crisis began, but now the government continues with the crisis and therefore the people too. The corruption is everywhere, and worse is what we all know.

Edited:

The economy in Spain has been falling since 2009 (two thousand and nine) and until now we haven’t seen many positive improvements. Why is that? When the economy started to decline, a cycle was formed which was impossible to break. I have heard that recently many foreigners from Latin America have returned because in their homes the men were the must important source of income. They had worked in the construction area and this area/industry was the first one that fell. Also many Spanish people left the country (Spain) searching for other opportunities because in those years the business owners didn’t want to recognize the professional title of the employees or the number of years that they had worked in the company, so they took advantage of this situation and preferred unskilled labor and paying very low salaries. Since then, I have seen Spain grow but at a slow pace since the financial crisis began, but now the government continues to be in crisis and therefore the people are too. Corruption is everywhere, but sometimes we see the worse of things.
