Spanish unions have called for a general strike on 29 March to protest against changes to labour laws, after failing to reach a compromise with the government on a labor reform which makes it cheaper to sack workers and more difficult to raise wages in line with inflation.

The reform is part of the centre-right government's measures to breathe life back into an economy that is probably already in recession and to encourage hiring in a country with an unemployment rate of 23 percent, the highest in the EU.

A general strike can deeply affect citizens' habits and travellers times and the possibility of displacement
