“In just one year we have changed the paradigm of the job market.” It is one of the messages transmitted this Wednesday by the second vice president and minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Diaz. It will be one year since the entry into force of the labor reform and the Ministry led by Díaz has valued the data that supports the new regulations. Notable among them is the temporary ratethe lowest in the entire historical series.
“It has been the end of bipartisanship in the labor reforms of our country“, Díaz has highlighted. From his point of view, all the labor reforms carried out in our country, 52 in total, walked in a single direction: deregulate the labor market and reduce the rights of workers. “They are the story of a failure that did not serve. Those reforms told us that there was no alternative and that we had to choose between unemployment and precariousness. We have shown that this was not true and that the world of work in our country is changing,” added the vice president.
“The labor reform is an example for the whole world because they recover rights”, the vice president proclaimed. “This is the Government of the workers and workers. We still have a lot to do but we are going to continue improving the lives of the people”, Díaz continued, even going so far as to emphasize that the current one is “the best government of democracy”.
