• "Díaz remains in a policy of gestures and symbols that is not accompanied by political decisions to remove the obstacles that women have"
• "More than stopping, what the president should do is put in hours to end the wage gap, labor hardship and unemployment among Andalusians"
• “Andalusians have to work 87 free days a year for 54 days in Spain. The two data are bad but here there is still more to do"
The president of the Andalusian PP, Juanma Moreno, announced today in Malaga that when he governs in Andalusia, he will require a gender equality certificate from companies and organizations that either hire or receive subsidies from the Andalusian Government. She added that "those who do not comply will not be able to contract with the Board, so they will have to put their batteries together, since Andalusia has a budget of 35.000 million euros." In addition, he was surprised that there are still companies that work for the Board in which there is wage inequality.
Juanma Moreno, who participated in an event organized for equal pay organized by the PP, pointed out that "it will be one more step of the many that must be taken to remove the obstacles that women encounter in the workplace." Thus, she pointed out that work must be done to promote conciliation through changes in schedules, flexibility or sick leave because "on too many occasions women are forced to choose between caring for their family and the workplace"
In this sense, she referred to Susana Díaz to say that "it hurts me that precisely a woman does not adopt much braver and more determined measures and stays in a policy of gestures and symbols that is not accompanied by political decisions."
"What the president should do more than stop, is work for women, put in hours to end the wage gap, labor hardship and unemployment suffered by Andalusian women," she said.
Moreno reproached the PSOE for "talking about gender equality without looking at and reviewing almost 40 years of socialist governments in Andalusia." He affirmed that the salary gap in Andalusia “is even bigger than in Spain and Andalusians have to work 87 free days a year for 54 days in Spain. The two data are bad and must be corrected but here there is still more to do.
He added that in Andalusia "things have not been done well because we are more in a policy of symbols that is not real" to which he blamed the fact that Andalusians have 10 points more unemployment and greater instability and precariousness than the rest of the communities.
The president of the PP Andaluz pointed out that "it does not make any sense that two people who work the same and with the same responsibilities do not earn the same". He considered that "it is sad that we have to do an act to vindicate something that is just and denounce what should have been eradicated a long time ago."
She assured that "this terrible injustice has to remove the foundations of our institutional and political structure to remove the obstacles that penalize the work of women."
