The OECD asks the Government of Pedro Sanchez to make progress in the reforms that the Spanish economy requires, and among its recommendations include equalizing the dismissal of permanent and casual workers and raising taxes on fuel .

In its document Bet for growth 2019 , which the OECD has published today and in which it analyzes the economic situation of the member countries, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development points out the need to " pursue a greater convergence between the costs of layoffs of temporary and indefinite . "

The organization led by the Mexican Ángel Gurría has always been concerned about the high rate of temporary employment in the Spanish labor market, and this document is no exception. Thus, the OECD requires that "continue efforts to combat the abuse of temporary contracts," and the recommendation offered is that "convergence" that would necessarily go to lower the cost of dismissal of workers with permanent contracts .

In the area of ​​taxation, the OECD proposes that the Executive raise taxes on fuels "to better reflect the impact of CO2 emissions". Given this recommendation, the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has already advanced that, in effect, will equal the price of diesel and gasoline . "All Europe has to put the batteries in environmental taxation, the environment does not wait," said Monero in statements in La Sexta, collected by Europa Press.

Montero, on the other hand, has not shown himself at all in agreement with reducing the cost of dismissal of the fixed workers to match it with the eventual workers. " We are not going to share layoffs and downward compensations that make many neoliberal formulas related to the matter cause greater ease of dismissal," he remarked.

The organization also proposes " improving the efficiency and progressivity of the tax system ", broadening the tax base by reducing exemptions and abolishing reduced VAT when it is regressive, as well as reducing regulatory differences between regions and regulatory barriers to corporate growth. , eliminating the rules that depend on the size of the companies.
