The Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, has insisted once again that she is not thinking about her candidacy for the Presidency of the Government, although she has advanced that “from now on” she is going to work “to raise a country project for the next 10 years “.

Díaz will activate a active to intensive listening process with the aim of advancing in the great challenges that Spain has ahead. “The time for the rulers not to listen is over. From now on I start to listen and not for a candidacy,” he assured this Friday in an interview in The hour of La1.

The Minister of Labor thanked the former Vice President of the Government, Pablo Iglesias, who counted on her as the most visible face of Podemos within the Government as well as the future candidate of the purple formation in La Moncloa. At this point he has remarked that he is not thinking about it, but has acknowledged that “After that process of active listening, I will decide what I am going to do.”

Yolanda Díaz explained that the process will begin immediately and that he will listen to “a lot of people” to “work for my country to deploy a new project to address the great challenges we have. “” We need a modern Spain, which wants a dignified life and in which care is at the center, “he explained.


In the economic sphere, Díaz has announced that the ERTE will be extended “for those sectors that need it most”, although without specifying the conditions. To reach an agreement, the Government has convened the Social Dialogue Table for next September 16.

The Minister of Labor has spoiled the employers for not entering to negotiate the rise of the SMI and has criticized that the employer’s association came to the negotiating table with the ‘no’ ahead. “I feel very sad because there has been a part that has sat at the table without negotiating. They said ‘I want 0 euros and freeze it’. That is not negotiating. And they go and leave the table, “he said.

Despite this closed opposition from the employers, Yolanda Díaz has made it clear that the SMI will go up, although he has not preferred to be prudent with the amount. “I am going to seek an agreement with the maximum number of interlocutors. There is an effort to help those who have the least,” he said without considering the negotiations broken.
