The rise in the SMI is within the fork recommended by experts consulted by the Government, between 12 and 19 euros. Vice-president Nadia Calviño defended that it should be placed at 12 euros, while the unions considered this range insufficient and demanded a rise of between 25 and 30 euros. The employer’s association had been planted in the ‘no’ to the rise for this year. 15 euros was the figure in which the Ministry of Labor stood in recent days.
