This has been a summer of record temperatures with figures never before recorded, although a general drop in heat is expected for these last days of August, which will be accompanied by storms. This Monday, in fact, twelve communities are on alert due to showers and heavy rains. In addition, after the drought and fires of recent weeks, the arid terrain has become more vulnerable to erosion caused by torrential rains, more and more frequent in Spain.
On the other hand, labor disputes have increased by 20% in the first half of the year compared to 2021. Prices are skyrocketing while wages in collective bargaining grow four times less. That enormous distance has already thrown thousands of workers into the streets and, now, the unions are warning of a restart of the mobilizations after the August break. The second vice-president of the Government, Yolanda Díaz, has once again defended this Monday the demonstrations announced by the unions to demand the revaluation of wages considering that "they have reasons to take to the streets against the bosses."
