Aid of up to 1,500 euros for SMEs that hire long-term unemployed (10/09/2018)

Unemployed people between 30 and 45 years old, women and single-parent families will be preferred groups

Santomera City Council will throw the rest to fight unemployment.

In addition to the training offer and the advisory work carried out by the Local Development Center and the Youth Guarantee and Youth Employment Service, more economic resources are now added.

And is that the Department of Employment will encourage for the first time the hiring by small and medium enterprises in our municipality of long-term unemployed people.

To do this, the City has launched a new line of subsidies that provide grants of between 900 and 1,500 euros for SMEs that between October 1 and September 30 have offered a year of work offer to people who carry more than twelve consecutive months enrolled as unemployed and who have not worked more than ninety days during the last year.

The subsidies are specifically designed to favor a group that until now had no type of support: the generation of people between thirty and 45 years.

Another of the fundamental objectives of this new line of aid is to promote labor equality and combat the sharp increase in unemployment among women in 2008, 48% of unemployed people were women;

now they represent more than 62%.

Therefore, the aid will be higher for this group (1,200 euros) and for single parent families (1,500).

The call also seeks to consolidate the stability of employment, which is why the minimum duration of contracts must be one year, and sustainable development, excluding companies sanctioned for attacking the environment.

The Councilor for Employment and Training, Víctor Egío, underlined in the presentation of the initiative that "it is the first time that a measure of this type is launched".

In his opinion, "unemployment is the main problem for Spaniards and Spaniards of all ages, and this is where we have to face the real problems of the people".

The Councilor for Equality, María José Campillo, highlighted the "feminist sensitivity" of the call, since "the so-called economic recovery has not come at all to women, who suffer a much greater inequality than a decade ago."

For its part, the Councilor for Social Rights and Migration, Alicia Poza, has celebrated that a group is attended to, the generation of support between 30 and 45 years, "that has descendants and greater dependents and that, in spite of suffer precariousness and a great risk of poverty, does not count for the administration.Four of every ten children of the Region is at risk of poverty and only receive help when this poverty is already manifest.

"In addition," Poza added, "they are the main group that is forced to emigrate, in the only Region that had a negative migratory balance in 2017."

Until October 1st

Applications to benefit from these new grants will be processed until October 1 through the Local Development Center of Santomera (Cedes).

The bases and the application model can also be found on the municipal website (
