The parliamentary spokesman, Rafa Mayoral, criticizes the body’s report on the consequences of the increase in the SMI for not taking into account the circumstances of people with lower salaries.

We can say that the governor of the Bank of Spain will have to “run with their heads.”

The warning from the Bank of Spain about the effects of radical increases in the Interprofessional Minimum wage (SMI) on the labor market have raised blisters in United We Can, whose parliamentary spokesman, Rafael Mayoral, has reacted stating that it will be necessary to “run with heads for unpresentable” to the governor of the organization, Pablo Hernndez de Cos.

In his intervention before the Plenary of Congress during the debate on a motion on access to housing for young people, Mayoral said he felt “a lot of shame” after the publication of this report, considering that the Bank of Spain “has returned to do your thing “, reports Europa Press.

The Bank of Spain has estimated between 90,000 and 170,000 the number of jobs that were affected in 2019 by the 22% increase in the SMI applied by the Government as soon as it arrived at Moncloa. The measure was highly debated at the time and was riddled with warnings about how the job market would absorb it. In this sense, the Bank of Spain was especially explicit, giving those who oppose a rise in this draft arguments to oppose and waking up strong animosity between the UGT and CCOO unions.

“He is very concerned that the minimum wage will not reach 1,000 euros and that they are very concerned because it destroys employment. You have to have very little shame to say this in a country like ours, “ The deputy of Podemos has wielded, wondering “what housing” can be talked about “when people with the minimum wage earn less than a thousand euros.” The leader of Podemos, a formation that shares the government with the PSOE, does not understand that Hernndez de Cos signs that report: “The governor should be sent to ‘gorrazos’, as unpresentable, he has assured.” It is unpresentable that he allows himself the luxury of attacking the interests of the most vulnerable people with savage demonstrations like the ones they have done in that report. “

The terms in which the parliamentary spokesperson for United Podemos has valued the Banco de Espaa report differ from those used by Yolanda Daz, leader of the purple party in the coalition government. Daz, who since the departure of Pablo Iglesias from the Government has lowered the strategy of frontal crashes to set a profile, has argued that the interpretation of the agency’s report referred to job destruction, although he did not deny at any time the conclusions in terms of the labor cost that has supposed the rise of the SMI in jobs. Daz assured that in 2019 some 400,000 jobs were created with what, he has admitted, the rise of 22% made it possible to stop creating jobs in a range of percentages. In any case, the vice president has especially valued that the Bank of Spain includes in its report the criterion of equity as one of those that must be taken into account to assess the measure.
