"While agricultural unemployment in the locality has passed-in 5 years, from 109 to 258, the positions offered in the current system of County Councils, have declined from 112 in 2005 to 106 today," said from IU + LV in a statement
The Municipal UI + Greens in the city of Totana, filed a motion for debate in plenary, which require the expansion to 4 million endowment from the District Councils on Employment for this year, would cover agricultural unemployed who are candidates to work with that program.
"The County Council Jobs are created, in the Region of Murcia in 1991 to respond to the existing seasonal agricultural unemployment in certain areas with the presence of agriculture, as in the town of Totana ..." says Spokesman IU at City Hall, Pedro Martínez Gómez.
Funding for this program is provided by the Public Employment Service, 75% and the Employment Service and Training-dependent Autonomous Region, by 25%.
"A few years ago, with the housing bubble in its splendor, the district councils, became a secondary element for employment, which has now radically changed, remains a staple program for traditional agricultural workers and the unemployed industrial, services or construction, taking refuge in the work of the Field, to be the least affected by the economic crisis.
Hence the rise of claimants and the urgent need to strengthen the Councils ... ", highlight the left-wing mayor in Consistory totanero.
"The IU + Group Councillors Greens not only raise the increase of 4 million euros to almost 6 million today. Propose a change in the objectives of the programs to take advantage of recycling, improving training and retraining of unemployed and stops, so that district councils are not simply "gutter cleaners, the deed and become a job-creating investment and productive," he added.
"For IU, the growth is very important, as job seekers in the County Councils, segments of the workforce, as youth, women, long-term unemployed over 45 years and non-EU foreign workers who have moved from 84 enrolled in the offices of the SEF of Totana, in July 2005 to the current 419, in late June 2010.
Among the other workers immigrants, the increase in unemployment has been almost 500%.
Comparatively, the Spanish national totaneros unemployed have grown by 215% (from 776 in 2005 to 1667 in June 2010.)
"While the central administration and the City, have spent hand over fist in 8 million E-alone plans in the town of Totana, no practical results in employment or training, the district councils have not only increased the budgets, when they take a lot more labor, socially can be very profitable for the municipality and become key elements in training and retraining of unemployed groups, with serious risk of social exclusion ... "they conclude from IU in Totana.
