Both the CEOE and the National Federation of Associations of Self-Employed Workers (ATA) they alerted on September 29 of this problem and demanded a regulatory change, without a solution yet to be found by the central government. Both organizations recall that a similar correction was necessary in March of last year, as it is happening now, the wording of that Royal Decree prevented access to aid for this type of self-employed worker.

For this reason, they request that the self-employed and businessmen of La Palma be protected with the utmost urgency and that an immediate solution be made effective to avoid the abandonment of these people.
