The Congress of Deputies has given the green light with near-unanimous support to that without doubt is one of the leading measures of the legislature, the minimum vital . So much so that two members of the Government have risen to the podium to defend it to the Full, something that only happens on rare occasions. The second vice-president Paul Churches and the minister of Social Security, José Luis Escrivá have left aside the tensions that the rush to tax the standard generated weeks ago between their departments and have been defended in advance that, for Spain, is their commissioning. is

The minimum income that has received the “yes” of all political parties, except the Vox, which has refrained, although your discussion has not been saved of the tension that pervades the last few sessions in the Chamber. The Popular Party, which is torn between the abstention and the support, has voted finally to “yes” to the measure, but it will be processed as a draft law to introduce amendments and modify it. One of the ideas of the popular is that the minimum income is linked to the búsquesa active employment and which cover a greater extent of poverty arisen by the Covid-19. Also, the popular be asked to create the social card only to ensure the transparency, sustainability, and the rigor in the system of aid, a request that had been repeated several times Paul Married.

During his speech, Churches have remembered that the minimum income was one of the proposals we Can when, six years ago, he began his political trajectory. And it has argued that this policy will result in a higher consumption and “help to self-employed and businesses so that they can continue factoring” . “This money will not go to Switzerland or tax havens,” has been said to defend in addition to the need for expansionary policies to deal with the crisis.

Iglesias has ensured that the minimum income vital is a “triumph” of the whole society, although it has not let slip the opportunity to assert their authorship, and has closed its inervención with the outside the motto badge we Can: “Yes, we can” . Escrivá, for its part, has focused in its design, based on “empirical data”, in the “constructive dialogue” with the that has developed and that comes to correct a “structural deficit history” of our country.

The staging of Churches, and his defense of the measure, has been answered with irony on the part of the member of coalición Canaria, Ana Oramas, who has said that in the minimum income vital, as in the traditional tale, “ants and locusts” and, after ignoring the second vice-president, has referred to Escrivá and his team as the real authors.

For his part, the spokesman attached to popular, Pilar Marcos, has pointed out that “the best social shield is the job”, and has insisted that it will be really effective when it ceases to be necessary. In addition it has lamemtado that “the victim’s economic Covid are not the target” of this aid and has recriminat that has not been driven on a temporary emergency for those who “have no other network”.

When you be charged?

Although the standard will still be some adjustment in the future regulatory development which starts now, the Government is committed to that as the June 26 what to charge some of the most vulnerable groups that have already been identified, and include some of 76,000 households. Requests to register in the next three months will be recognized the provision from 1 June. The Government will also recognize ex officio the right to charge the minimum income to people who currently benefit from the income of the autonomous community. The assistance may be requested from the 15th of June and the aim is that the income finally arrives to an estimated 850,000 households, about 2.3 million people, for an 80% reduction in the extreme poverty of Spain.

how much is the aid?

The amount of aid will range between 461,5 euros and 1.915,3 euros per month in twelve payments per household. This is, Spain has a guaranteed income half of 10.070 euros per year, although this income will be able to add other income that can complement the autonomous regions in Addition, it provides a supplement of 100 euros for the situations of single mothers. is The estimated cost to the treasury of the State will be about 3,000 million and pay the Social Security.

Who can apply?

as the pueeden ask all those families that prove a vulnerability , that is, when the total household income to be lower than the guaranteed income that corresponds to them. In addition, its assets, excluding the home, must be less than 3 times the guaranteed income annually for a one-person household, but it will be considered a scale of increments per household.

it will Also be necessary to take at least a year residing legally in Spain, which leaves out-migrants in an irregular situation. The standard provides for some exceptions as in the case of applicants for international protection, victims of trafficking in human beings or foreign women victims of gender-based violence, even if they are in an irregular situation. Will also be able to access the minimum income to those women who are victims of abuse who have left their family home, usual accompanied by their children, and their relatives up to the second degree by consanguinity or affinity.

What happens with the income of the autonomous community?

The income that you currently have some communities will be complementary to the minimum income national. That is, communities must redesign from now on its aid to be able to fit into the national grid and decide if they complement your amount of, or extend it to new groups. According to Escrivá, the aim of the minimum income is to standardise a situation that until now was too disparate and that he had been targeted by the authorities on several occasions. “Communities have programs heterogeneous. Had to put a minimum. Now the communities will have to redefine their income and see what they want to cover and fill in,” said Escriva.

One of the questions that currently rests on the future of the provision is whether the various governments will choose to extend support or if, on the contrary, allocate the savings to other purposes. Escrivá has been recognized that “it is difficult to know what will be the behavior of each community,” but, it’s guaranteed that “no one is going to be worse than he was.” And has been pointed out that the range of performance will be greater: “In certain communities, we know that we will reach many more people than could be reached until now,” he predicted.
