Under-the-table payments still prevalent in Spain

ONE in five unemployed residents and 10 per cent of employed people in Spain admit to receiving under-the-table payments, says a study.
The report, carried out by employment website Infojobs, which collected data during 2014, found that 45 per cent of interviewees would be willing to accept this kind of payment method.
For those who had a job, the illegal payments represented 24.5 per cent of their salary, according to the report.
The main reason given by those interviewed to consenting to the practice was, they claimed, that it was the only option offered to them by the company paying them, although 20 per cent of them admitted that the money received was added to a main, legal salary.
