The Government confirms that there will be a minimum vital income

The Executive does not yet have the details of how it will do it

The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, José Luis Escrivá, confirmed this Wednesday that the Government “is committed” to the implementation of a vital minimum income. “We are studying the design of the measure and as soon as it is prepared in its details it will be communicated and implemented,” Escrivá said at a press conference held at the Palacio de la Moncloa with the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa.

Escrivá has also confirmed that the Government works on additional measures to protect domestic workers from the effects of the Covid-19 crisis.

Asked about the benefit for parents who are unable to telework and who have to take care of their children, which was announced when schools closed, the minister pointed out that this benefit was intended for a very specific situation that has been “widely overcome”, reason why the Government is working on measures “of greater amplitude”.
