Sumar put the labor agenda at the center of political demands. The vice president of the Government and leader of the left platform, Yolanda Díaz, assured that they put this concern in the agreement with the PSOE to reissue the coalition Executive, with the negotiations running. Along with this demand is an increase in the interprofessional minimum wage, the regulation of rents or a review of the dismissal conditions.
“People can’t wait any longer,” Díaz said at a Compromís-Sumar event in Valencia. The representative of the left-wing platform discussed the pilot test of the four-day work day carried out in the city, whose conclusions point to the improvement of the health perception of the participants. “The time has come to move on. It must be the legislature where the working day is reduced,” he said, while calling it “shameful” that for a century the time dedicated to work in Spain has not been reviewed.
Together with the deputies elected for the constituency of Valencia, Díaz assured that the Valencian agenda is part of the government’s commitments. It calls for the reform of the regional financial system or the guarantee of investments according to the weight of the population, and other issues. “This is the regional financial legislature for Valencia. For justice, for democracy, and because it is what the Valencians voted for,” insisted the acting vice president, which includes the need for more resources for public services of the autonomous community, the worst financed by the State.
The leader promised to “fight” so that the government’s progressive agreement would include an increase in the minimum wage and pensions, improve health care, end the “uncertainty of the public administration” and, in terms of taxes and tax, that ” Those who have more, pay more.” “The greater transfer of income from citizens to financial institutions is happening in an unequal way as a result of the excessive increase in interest rates. “They are getting rich,” criticized the Sumar leader. Díaz mentioned with special emphasis the tax on extraordinary profits of companies, criticized especially by banks, and criticized the PSOE for its bad attitude in this regard.
