The plans of Minister José Luis Escrivá to strengthen the fight against child poverty consist of a new aid of 50 euros per child for families in poverty, as advanced elDiario.es. This is a starting proposal, which has been presented as an amendment by the PSOE in the parliamentary processing of the minimum vital income (IMV) and which will be discussed in Congress. So, if you go ahead, you can end up with several changes. Not only in its amount, but also in the scope of the families that benefit from it. To put the initiative into perspective, it should be remembered that Spain now invests in general much less than European countries in childhood and has much more child poverty than its neighbors.
