Major economies still struggling to create jobs

Amaya Munoz Garcia, 31 years old, cries as she receives support from a member of the Victims' Mortgage Platform (PAH) while she waits to be evicted in Madrid, Spain, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. Munoz Garcia stopped paying rent after she lost her job ten months ago. She started to receive 670 euros ($879) per month as her unemployment benefit as she was looked for a new job which she has never found. She could not afford to pay the 640 euros ($840) a month rent and electricity bill and buy food at the same time, and the loss of both of her parents during a short period in the last two years left her without a close family support. Time has past and she still has not found a job. She has accumulated a debt of 8,000 euros ($ 10,503) including 2,000 euros ($ 2,625) interest. The eviction was finally postponed with the help of the Victims' Mortgage Platform (PAH) and they try to negotiated a social rent and a payment plan. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)
