Elections In Spain: The Main Economic Proposals Reflect The Political Fragmentation

This Sunday 28, Spanish citizens will vote in a political scenario more fragmented than ever, although in the last few months two blocks have been formed reproducing the old left-right division that existed before. On the other hand, the conservative Popular Party (PP) and the liberal party Ciudadanos (Cs) have already declared their intention to form a coalition, but they would also need another ally according to polls. PP, Ciudadanos, and Vox have promised a considerable reduction of taxes, especially regarding the Income Tax and its maximum rate. Both Podemos and PSOE aim to increase the contribution of large companies and taxpayers with higher incomes to the’ State coffers’. Despite the economic recovery, the unemployment rate is still at 14% and job insecurity has increased due to the labor reforms to make the employment market more flexible after the economic crisis. Unidas Podemos proposes to prohibit temporary contracts of less than one month and set a maximum of six months, after which the contract must become permanent. For its part, PSOE has promised to simplify the types of contracts to three (indefinite, temporary and training), while the manifesto of Vox talks about reductions of 10% in social contributions to companies that create new permanent contracts to unemployed people. PP and Ciudadanos have focused on self-employed workers in their manifestos, proposing tax reductions and incentives to encourage entrepreneurship while Unidas Podemos emphasis on the need to address the growing phenomenon of 'false self-employed' people. There is also a big contrast when it comes to the minimum wage, which already experienced an increase of 22% in January after the agreement between PSOE and Unidas Podemos. And PP wants to deepen the flexibility of the labor market in order to create more jobs.
