Mileuristas: The generation of the €1000

A Mileurista is someone born in Spain between 1976 and 1981, and subsequently having graduated from university earns a monthly income of less than €1000. They are the most highly qualified generation in Spain’s history. They are around 30 years old; they have graduated from university but this is the first generation to have a lower standard of life than their parents.

They grew up hoping that their degrees would give them a high quality of life but the excess of graduates and social shifts have condemned them to live with jobs of less than €1000 per month. With soaring cost of food, fuel, highest inflation and interest rates, life is not easy.

“Mileuristas” is a multimedia documentary focusing on the daily lives of five young people, on their expectations and disappointments over the material world we live in.
