The Minister of Economy, Finance and Public Administration, Antonio Ramírez de Arellano, has been in favor of establishing loans or tax advances for young people who begin their working life, so that he believes that “the idea of” is not a bad idea ” advance social benefits and that these can later be compensated in the work-life already stabilized “- Loans-n-Loans.
In his first act after assuming the area of Finance, Arellano, who has closed the day ‘The job market in 2030: successfully managing the new challenges’ at the International University of Andalusia (UNIA), explained that this day has been talked about new paradigms of work, since “all economic planning circulates around work, that is, life circulates around work, as well as training for work and job opportunities”.
He added that “taxation also depends on how we define work, as well as the sustainability of the social protection system”.
In that sense, he recalled that “everything is changing in an accelerated manner and new forms of work are appearing”. He highlighted the interest of this type of conference in the process of acceleration that technological changes are assuming, “some changes”, said that “they influenced at the time the employment models that have been happening and now, in the digital era it’s something we provide for 2030, a moment that is already here. “
Arellano recalled that “this is not the first time this has happened, and in history, there have been technological changes or that have led to a reformulation of the concept of work, such as the arrival of machines, the introduction of energies or the improvement of communications. , and now we are in the digitization stage “.
Considers that “the combination of digital strategies instead of adding is multiplied”, so “the process of acceleration forces us to formulate things differently, since” we are used to it, when things are calmer we have more time to react, and before this, when one is in accelerated movement, to avoid getting dizzy, the strategy is to take a deep breath and look far away, not to look at the immediate things, then that’s when it gets tighter. “You have to reflect, look with a little distance and time and elevate ourselves on what was previously considered work “.
“We must try to transcend and see the multipolar nature of work, and see the importance for the economy and how it supports the welfare state,” he said.
In terms of young people, Arellano pointed out that in northern European countries, four percent of young people between the ages of 25 and 35 have not been emancipated, and in Spain, that is 40 percent, which is a factor in tremendous ballast for the economy, before what has suggested any suggestion, so that “just as you have solidarity with previous generations, when they are retired and they are provided with a basic income that allows them to have a minimum of life, we must undertake measures for the young boys”.
Thus, he recalled that “in the crises that we have suffered, young people are the most affected, they are the first to enter the labor market and are being the last ones to re-enter, it takes effort”.
In this sense, after recalling that “autonomy is closely related to their life prospects and facilitate being entrepreneurs and autonomous,” has supported the idea of “anticipate benefits when you are starting to enter work life, you can advance benefits socially, through loans or tax advances, and they can compensate when they have a stable working life, that’s not a bad idea. “
REFORM OF FINANCING
The counselor recalled that the current situation “should rethink the financing of the autonomous communities to fulfill their fundamental mission, linked to public services, health, education, and dependency.”
In that sense, he recalled that “there is the luck of having an Andalusian woman on the other side of the phone in Madrid”, something that “is great and we hope it will have positive effects, because we know that the current minister, María Jesús Montero, is convinced of the same approaches of Andalusia. “
The assembly hall of the International University of Andalusia (UNIA) has hosted the conference ‘The job market in 2030: successfully managing the new challenges’, with the aim of “debating and analyzing, from different perspectives, the challenges it faces our labor market and try to detect the inefficiencies of our system and generate a proposal for long-term change that develops a new model of labor relations, focused on innovation and able to eliminate the perverse trend of structural unemployment in Spain “.
The seminar was organized by the Vice Chancellor of Non-regulated Training, Quality, and Research of the UNIA, José Ignacio García Pérez.
The day, inaugurated by the rector of the UNIA, José Sánchez Maldonado and the Deputy Minister of Employment, Business and Trade, Pilar Serrano, has placed emphasis on analyzing the consequences that globalization and the digital revolution are imposing on labor relations. Likewise, we have reflected on the interaction of the labor market with the education system and how it can improve the preparation of workers and their adaptation to new changes.
The Deputy Minister of Employment, Pilar Serrano, said that “there are several elements or challenges on which to reflect and make decisions in the political sphere if we want the growth and development of society to be inclusive and sustainable”, and set the debate on the four models to take into account: “the educational model, the economic model, the model of innovation and the model of labor relations.”
For his part, Manuel Hidalgo, professor of Economics at the University Pablo de Olavide (UPO) of Seville, said in his speech that “the technological revolution puts us before the challenge of the continuous training of workers between 30 and 45 years, They must adapt to new tasks so they do not lose their jobs. “
Iñigo Sagardoy, of the law firm ‘Sagardoy Abogados’, focused his speech on urgently demanding “a reform of the labor legislation to adapt to the new business models”. After emphasizing that “the starred task is training throughout life,” he reiterated the need for “the size of companies to be increased, as well as taking advantage of and copying the good examples of innovative collective bargaining”, indicating that in our country “the automotive sector is a paradigmatic sector” in this matter.
The rector of Internationalization of the UNIA emphasized the changes that the digital revolution will force to make in the structures of companies, and stressed that they “will lose a lot of money if they let their workers go and they must find ways to retain them”.
For his part, after highlighting the need for policies that prepare society for the change that is already coming, Rafael Domenech, head of Macroeconomic Analysis and professor of Economics at the University of Valencia, said that “the dual distribution of educational levels in Spain implies that approximately one third of the young population may not be sufficiently prepared to face the challenges of the digital revolution. “
