Ayuso has warned that if “uninformed” measures are taken to re-start the hospitality industry, the Community of Madrid could reach one million unemployed by the end of the year, which could cause “disturbances”.
The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has argued that if “uninformed measures” are taken when reopening the hospitality industry, there may be more than a million unemployed in the region by the end of the year, which “would lead to riots.”
Ayuso was quite clear in her words to the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, during the eighth videoconference held last weekend between the Government and regional presidents.
She said that she had no doubts there would be problems of public and social order with so many people out of work.
Ayuso also asked that a return to education be considered at all levels, at least 15 days before the end of the school year. “We have to try to get students back to class before the end of the current term and the end of their current courses, whilst being flexible and sensitive to the situation when it comes to their evaluation,” she said in a statement, placing special emphasis on the need to address this matter for the older students, from ESO and Bachillerato.
She requested that the return to classrooms of the students in their final year of Secondary and Baccalaureate (A level) education is made compulsory and not voluntary.
She also warned that there will be more than 45,000 students in the Madrid region will remain unexamined because plans have still not been made. These are adults and students who want to access artistic or sports education.
