The vice president of the Junta de Castilla y León, Juan García-Gallardo (Vox), has linked the shortage of labor for certain sectors with the alleged existence of “excessive social benefits.” According to the senior regional official, this aid implies that there are people who “settle in a situation of precariousness and dependence on the public sector.” Left-wing parties and unions have criticized the statements of Gallardo, who receives a salary of about 90,000 euros per year from the taxpayer and without having specific powers. These words come shortly after the president of the hoteliers of Spain, José Luis Yzuel, was scandalized because there are fewer and fewer people who want to do daily shifts in the hotel industry that he sees as “normal”: “All life in the hotel industry is He has worked half a day, from 12 to 12″. He apologized shortly after.
García-Gallardo spoke like this this Thursday at an innovative agri-food industry forum in Valladolid. “We must make a calm and prudent reflection on the reasons why there is no labor force while we have almost 100,000 unemployed workers,” stated the vice president of the Board. For him, the presence of this public support for unemployed workers implies that they give up looking for work and thus “settle themselves in a precarious situation.” “No matter how much we make efforts in terms of innovation, if there are no qualified workers to apply these technological innovations, the industry will not have a future,” said the partner of Alfonso Fernández Mañueco (PP). Furthermore, he has stressed that the lack of labor harms multiple sectors of Castilla y León.
The vice president’s statements have provoked the reaction of Pablo Fernández, representative of Unidas Podemos in the community. “The paradigm of public parasite says so. Infamous”, Fernández has written in . The official account of Izquierda Unida has stated: “Our vice president, who is paid from the public sector, without any precariousness, and without powers. That he says that we do not want to work in Castilla y León because of the aid.” The PSOE has declined to value these words from the Vox leader.

The general secretary of the General Union of Workers (UGT) in Castilla y León, Faustino Temprano, calls these comments by the vice president “just another nonsense”: “There is no reason, people want to work, but to do so they need the Vox’s Employment Department, better manage public money and the public employment service. The people of Castile and León do not believe in him because of the policies he applies, not because of his officials.” Temprano demands “guidance and training” from Employment to stimulate the unemployed and prevent young people from leaving the territory in search of opportunities: “We would like Gallardo to say how many people he knows who have resigned from a position; he continually discredits the community and contributes nothing.” The union leader also points out “some employers” for offering positions “in violation of the labor reform due to the type of contract or salaries.”
