  • Economy.Trabajo ignores the pressure of Nadia Calviño on the SMI: "The Government does not contemplate freezing the minimum wage"

Internal tension in the



grows uncontrollably

after weeks of continuous disagreements.

Absolutely divided in the support for Felipe VI and the endorsement of the monarchy, to this crucial issue has been added that the negotiation on the limitation of evictions, the differences on the rise of the Interprofessional Minimum Wage (SMI) and today, has stalled, the criticism of the



to the fourth vice president, Teresa Ribera, for her opposition, according to the version that they have offered, to prohibit the cutting of water, electricity or gas to vulnerable people.

The reproaches to Ribera have been leaked to the media while the

Council of Ministers

was meeting


It is a very common practice of United We Can, which is committed to public pressure when it fails to carry out its thesis within the Executive.

But for the first time, the Government spokesperson, María Jesús Montero, has reproached her partners for this attitude, precisely in a question that alluded to their loyalty.

The also Minister of Finance has defended that the issues that affect the Council of Ministers, the "logical" and "normal" is that "they develop in this environment" and then "we can communicate the decision that has been adopted."

"This is how we usually conduct ourselves most of the members of the Executive," he added, in which he made a clear reference to the socialist bloc.

In fact, Montero has come to the rescue of the fourth vice president and minister for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, of whom he has stressed that he has always shown a "special sensitivity" with vulnerable consumers and has promoted protection mechanisms to avoid cuts in supplies.

United We can demand that the electricity, gas and water supply companies be forced to request a report from social services before proceeding with the cut.

But what the Executive spokesperson has confirmed is that the decree laws or laws that are being processed will include an additional provision of "guarantee of energy supply" for consumers in vulnerable situations, who are recognized as such by social services , including those that are not protected by the social bond.

"There is no doubt that the government is going to ban it," he said.

The change is that the protection is extended to those who are not beneficiaries of the social electricity bonus.

In this appearance, the considerations that the spokesperson has been forced to make about the positions of Podemos have not been left there.

Again, as yesterday the Secretary of Organization of the PSOE and Minister of Transport, José Luis Ábalos, recalled that the position on the monarchy is the one set by the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez.

And it has had to specify the position on the rise next year of the Interprofessional Minimum Wage (SMI).

While the Ministry of Labor insists that it will rise, María Jesús Montero has transmitted today that it is a pending decision to be made, based on the economic context left by the pandemic and within the framework of social dialogue.
