Proposals of the PP for the General Elections
✅ WE ARE THE PARTY OF FAMILIES AND WE ARE GOING TO MAKE GOOD POLICIES FOR EVERYONE, AGAINST THOSE WHO WANT TO POLITIZE THEM.
- Making it easier for all those who want to be parents to become one, with bonuses to hire working mothers indefinitely and increasing the family income tax minimum for the second child.
- Truly betting on conciliation until we are at the head of Europe, promoting labor flexibility in such a way that an hours bank is created and workers who are parents can take hours to be with their families and compensate them at another time.
- Advancing in education and training, guaranteeing free nursery schools from 0 to 3 years of age and giving parents control over the Internet content their children access.
Our two major objectives include exceeding 22 million employed persons in the next legislature and placing Spain on the podium of the fastest growing countries in the EU.
To do this, first of all, we will carry out an audit of public accounts, we will form a smaller government and we will lower personal income tax for income earners of less than 40.000 euros so that families can face the unstoppable rise in prices. This is an ethical commitment that we will implement in the first hundred days.
We will change employment policies through the training check that gives freedom of choice to the unemployed and with job orientation supported by Big Data. We will introduce portable individual accounts for workers that they can use for various contingencies in their working lives.
