The Government will approve the youth employment plan and a reform to protect the disabled



The Council of Ministers will approve tomorrow the Young Employment Plan, which aims to reduce the youth unemployment rate by ten points over the next three years, and will process the draft reform of the Constitution to provide greater protection to the rights of people with disability.

Sánchez will preside over the Council meeting after three weeks without doing so due to his international commitments, since in recent weeks he had to leave Madrid to attend the Ibero-American summit in Antigua (Guatemala), make an official trip to Cuba and participate in the summit of the G20 in Buenos Aires.

The meeting of tomorrow will be attended by all the members of the Government except the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, and the Minister of Health, María Luisa Carcedo.

The approval of the Youth Employment Plan 2019-2021 was announced by the Chief Executive, who said that it would be approved at the meeting tomorrow.

He advanced that the intention is to reduce by ten points the unemployment rate for children under 25 years to 23.5 percent within three years, and that will be mobilized for it 2,000 million euros in the budget bill of 2019

The plan, according to sources of the Ministry of Labor, includes 50 measures aimed at improving the employment of those under 30, among whom there are more than 550,000 people unemployed.

The plan has been agreed by the Government and the social partners, and its draft plans to allocate the budget so that in 2019 665 million will be invested; in 2020, another 666; and in 2021, 668 million.

In addition, the Government will process tomorrow the preliminary draft reform of Article 49 of the Constitution to provide greater protection to the rights of people with disabilities with the aim of achieving real and effective equality of this group.

The approval of this preliminary draft in the meeting of tomorrow was advanced this week by the Ministry of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Equality after the meeting that its holder and vice-president of the Government, Carmen Calvo, and the minister of Health maintained with the Committee Spanish for Representatives of Persons with Disabilities (CERMI).

In particular, the reform will eliminate the word "diminished" to refer to people with disabilities.

One of the most outstanding aspects of the reform is the one that expressly states that people with disabilities will enjoy their rights under conditions of freedom and equality without discrimination.

In addition, it is expressly provided that public authorities develop policies aimed at achieving their personal autonomy and social inclusion.

It also recognizes for the first time the particular protection required by women and girls with disabilities, as it is a particularly vulnerable and discriminated group.
