Spain has educated workers. The real problem is that Spanish businesses often seek to compete on low wages instead of good management and investment strategies.
The Basque Country has been a notable, if partial, exception.
There this is more competition based on quality and specialization, with the attendant investment in plant and vocational skills. The uncoordinated use of universities to provide workers marketable skills ends badly. Student leave with a general education and little of actual use in getting a job.
And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
