Yolanda Díaz, Third Vice-President of the Government and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, caused a stir on social networks after posting a message on her Twitter profile in which she criticized the lack of “ethics” of some “large companies”.
“It is unethical that there are large companies that are laying people off and showing an absolute lack of empathy in the midst of the pandemic, while having great benefits,” Díaz said in a post on the social network, to which he added: “We need everyone in the world to build a new social contract.”
Pedro Sánchez spoke in the same direction during his speech at the Social Summit of the European Union held in Porto, where he said that it was not acceptable that there are layoffs ” in companies in sectors that have won the crisis, while they have wages. “six figures” and benefits and bonuses are increased.
“I do not think that this is acceptable and we must give a firm answer”, defended the Prime Minister, supporting, in turn, the post of the second vice-president of the government and Minister of Economic Affairs, Nadia Calviño, who transferred his statement to the Bank of Spain, worrying about salaries and bonuses of senior executives in the banking sector, especially in a scenario marked by strong staff adjustments in the sector.
Regarding Yolanda Díaz’s message, it caused divisions on the Internet: on the one hand, there are those who criticized the fact that, precisely, someone in the government makes this comment, while others have responded to the post by supporting it. In any case, the publication has acquired a great relevance, since it gave rise in a few hours to more than 4,700 comments, around 10,000 retweets and more than 32,600 “likes”.
