The unemployment data for the month of July have been devastating: the worst data since 2008 and job losses already in seasonally adjusted terms, regardless of the effects of the calendar. In turn, the pace of job creation confirms the symptoms of cooling the labor market. Young people are one of the most affected age groups due to this slowdown. However, it seems that the rise to 900 euros of the minimum wage has triggered expectations and the vast majority of them are not willing to work at any price. In fact, two out of three (69%) would not start in their first job for less than 20,000 euros per year, according to a study conducted by Círculo Formacion in 13 Spanish cities.
According to the data collected by the consultant, 30% would agree to receive an annual salary of 15,000 euros in their first job, but 69% would not work for less than € 20,000 per year: 27% would settle for that amount, while 23 % goes up to 25,000 euros, and 19% would not be willing to work in their first position for less than 30,000 euros. Salary aspirations are slightly more positive than last year, since the previous year was 33% who would be willing to work in their first job for 15,000 euros per year.
Also in this case, there are differences between richer and poorer regions. The most demanding in this regard are the locals, since 79% would not work in their first job for less than 20,000 euros, followed by the youth of Madrid (77%). In the opposite extreme are the Sevillians: 38% would accept their first position for an annual salary of 15,000 euros. They are followed by Murcia (37%) and Granada (36%).
91% consider that, although it is a symbolic amount, the practices must be paid because a job is being done; On the contrary, 9% think that it is not necessary because it provides experience for the curriculum and enriches professionally.
