PPC’s (Partit Popular de Catalunya) mission to get the xenophobic vote in Catalunya continues with their dumb latest idea, which is a contract that immigrants would sign before immigrating.
It commits them to pay their taxes, learn Catalan and most importantly, go “home” if they lose their jobs. So exactly why should immigrants have an obligation to pay unemployment taxes?
But wait, the stupidity does not stop there. The president of the PPC continued:
“With nearly 20% of unemployment, we cannot maintain the same immigration policy that when we had 8% of workers without jobs. With the crisis we are forced to take action and fix immigration, where one in five unemployed is an immigrant.”
Okay everyone, what’s one in five? 20%.
So basically immigrants have the same unemployment rate as the rest of Spain.
