(ANSA) – MADRID, MAY 24 – About 50,000 vacant positions: this is the calculation of the jobs as waitresses that should be assigned in Spain in view of the summer to return to pre-pandemic levels, according to reports from Cadena Ser radio based to government data.

A problem of lack of personnel denounced for some time by entrepreneurs in the sector, who argue that the lack of “vocation” and “professional training” is the main reason that justifies this situation. Arguments to which workers with experience in the sector respond by highlighting the often precarious working conditions, the long days required and the low wages offered in one of the crucial economic areas for a country that certainly cannot do without tourism.

In 2020, the average salary in the restaurant business was 1,119.5 euros, according to the National Institute of Statistics.

Government officials also support this second point of view. “If some entrepreneurs in our country find it difficult to find workers, I give them a lead: that they pay more, that they offer better conditions”, said a few months ago in Parliament the deputy prime minister and minister of labor, Yolanda Díaz, one of the main promoters of a reform, already in force, which aims to break down precariousness.

To accuse these problems of lack of staff the most, reports a recent report from El País, are tourist areas such as the Costa Brava, one of the most popular destinations in Catalonia. To address the situation, Cadena Ser reports, the government, trade unions and entrepreneurs are holding talks to study solutions. (HANDLE).
