President of the People’s Party, Alberto Nunez Feizuand Labor Minister, yolanda diazoo, has shown its discrepancies as a result of the unemployment figures revealed today. Feijo has said that the data is made up, and that “it is not something that the Spaniards deserve”, and Yolanda Díaz has responded that the statements are “an aberration”, that the President of the Popular is “ready to rule”. and should be consulted on matters in which I see that he lacks knowledge.
Figures presented today by the Diaz department claim a strong increase in permanent contracts. However, almost 40% of contracts signed within this modality are fixed-discontinuous, A point, the latter, at which the popular leader has accused the executive of “make-up” the figures.
The response of the Labor Ministry is not long in coming. “They have a serious problem, because Mr. Feizu is a jurist, and he has ruled an autonomous community (Galicia) for 13 years, and Doesn’t know how to understand what a definite-discontinuous is…», Díaz responded during his reply to the popular deputy Diego Movellon during the Works Commission in the Congress of Deputies.

The government has released unemployment figures for the month of May. Unemployment has fallen below 3 million for the first time since 2008. In addition, Spain has exceeded twenty million employed in seasonally adjusted terms.

The PP has pointed out that «we haven’t scaled back working hours, we lose productivity, discontinuous permanent workers have few hours working conditions… he is creating data. Spain doubles the unemployment average of EU countries”, he indicated. Juan BravoDeputy Secretary of the Economy, in the afternoon.
The truth is that Unemployment in Spain remains twice the Eurozone average (13.6% compared to 6.8%) and progress in reducing temporary employment has not been impressive. Most of the jobs that have been created remain temporary, and new job creation has remained below the registered average between 2015 and 2019, according to data provided by economist Daniel Lackley in the column above these lines.
