He affirms that he will miss Nadia Calviño and that it is a "pride" that a woman presides over an international institution like the EIB
MADRID, 28 Dic. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The second vice president of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, highlighted this Thursday that "any person" in Spain cannot understand why the Executive lowers taxes on large energy companies, and has assured that they are going to work to try to get these tax incentives "corrected."
"Far from lowering their taxes, they have to be the ones to contribute to the solution to the crisis in Spain," said Díaz in an interview on TVE reported by Europa Press, in which he commented that it is "absolutely incomprehensible" that the country, both large energy companies and financial entities, have "absolutely obscene" profits.
"We lower taxes precisely on these energy companies," Díaz criticized, calling it "incomprehensible" that a progressive Government incentivizes or subsidizes tax deductions for energy entities that "double the profits and profitability" in relation to European energy companies. .
For this reason, he assured that "there is no one in the Spanish economy who can defend this, except for ideological reasons", while at the same time stating that this tax was working well.
However, the head of labor has assured that the coalition government is taking "positive" measures for Spain, although she has stated that "they are not enough."
Díaz has also explained that the Royal Decree-Law published this Thursday in the Official State Gazette (BOE) is "welcome", and has considered that not having extended the measures, which was the debate that the Government had yesterday, would have been "bad news for Spain".
On the other hand, the head of Labor has assured that with an "immediate nature" the Government will continue to raise the minimum interprofessional wage, given its commitment "to the workers, to the self-employed and to the people of Spain."
For his part, when asked about Nadia Calviño and her departure to the European Investment Bank (EIB), Díaz assured that he has already said goodbye to her, and that he will miss her, while stating that he is "proud" that a woman leads an international financial institution.
He has also highlighted, in reference to Calviño's replacement, that "they will know him tomorrow", and that the important thing is for the Government to convey that it will continue working to protect the workers.
Finally, he insisted that rental prices must be limited "immediately", given that Spain has "a serious problem", stating that it must be guaranteed that "housing is a fundamental right, as the Constitution says Spanish".
