VILLACANAS, SPAIN - NOVEMBER 23: Forty-year old Maria Regine Bueno Villar (L) and her husband, forty-eight year old former door factory worker, Angel Perez Fernandez store food they received at a Red Cross point in their kitchens closet on November 23, 2012 in Villacanas, Spain. During the boom years, where in its peak Spain built some 800,000 houses a year accompanied by the manufacturing of millions of wooden doors where needed, the people of Villacanas were part of Spain's middle class enjoying high wages and permanent jobs. During the construction boom years the majority of the doors used within these new developments were made in this small industrial town. Approximately seven million doors a year were once assembled here and the factory employed a workforce of almost 5700 people, but the town is now left almost desolate with the Villacanas industrial park now empty and redundant. With Spain in the grip of recession and the housing bubble burst, Villacanas is typical of many former buoyant industrial Spanish towns now struggling with huge unemployment problems.
