The bill includes deeply divisive plans for a transfer and layoff scheme for 25,000 public workers - mainly teachers and municipal police - that had triggered a week of almost daily marches, rallies and strikes in protest.

Ibanez quit school at the age of 16 to help pay the bills at home and did various different jobs before going back to complete his secondary education. Recently, he decided to start working as a day labourer. "I know for sure this is not what I want to do for the rest of my life, but this is all I can find now," he says. The majority of day labourers in the region come from Morocco and Ecuador, and it can be rare to see Spanish labourers in the fields. Nevertheless, as Spain wrestles with economic crisis and youth unemployment levels above 50 percent, some young Spaniards are starting to consider the kinds of jobs mostly performed by immigrants during the boom years.

Spanish farmer Santiago Perez watches as 'rebuscadores' (gleaners) prepare to leave with a sack of potatoes they collected from one of his harvested fields in the southern Spanish region of Murcia June 5, 2013. Gleaning, or gathering leftover produce after a harvest, is a traditional practice in rural areas, but has become more common since the economic crisis hit. "As long as they do it once we have harvested, we don't care. The discarded produce is fit to eat, it just didn't meet our standards for our clients" Perez explains. The majority of day labourers in the region come from Morocco and Ecuador, and it can be rare to see Spanish labourers in the fields.

Farm worker Mustapha El-Mezroui helps load a sack filled with potatoes onto a truck in Murcia
Farm worker Mustapha El-Mezroui (R) helps load a sack filled with potatoes onto a truck during the harvest in a field belonging to Spanish farmer Santiago Perez in the southern Spanish region of Murcia, June 6, 2013. El-Mezroui left his native Morocco for Spain on a makeshift boat in the mid-1990s, and now works as a keeper and farm hand on a farm outside La Puebla, Cartagena, where he lives with his wife and three-year-old son. He supervises day labourers, does maintenance work and performs other jobs, helping to keep the farm secure. The majority of day labourers in the region come from Morocco and Ecuador, and it can be rare to see Spanish labourers in the fields. Nevertheless, as Spain wrestles with economic crisis and youth unemployment levels above 50 percent, some young Spaniards are starting to consider the kinds of jobs mostly performed by immigrants during the boom years Picture taken June 6, 2013.

An Alcoa Inc. worker protests against their dismissals from employment in front of the Ministry of Employment building in Rome September 10, 2012. The Italian government has received only generic expressions of interest in Alcoa Inc's loss-making aluminium plant on the island of Sardinia and there is no firm bid on the table, Industry Minister Corrado Passera told Reuters on Sunday. U.S.-listed aluminium maker Alcoa has decided to close down its Sardinian smelter, putting at risk around 1,500 jobs in an area that has one of the highest unemployment rates in Italy.
