COUNCIL VOTE: Employment equality demand. Photo credit: Alfaz town hall
ALFAZ council voted to ask the Spanish government to pass an Employment Equality law. The vote was timed to commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8, prompted by the government to effectively guarantee conciliation between work and the family, said the town hall’s spokesman, Toni Such. There is still a 15 per cent wage gap between men and women, the motion pointed out, putting Spain well below the EU average. Councillors also voted in favour of formally declaring Alfaz a municipality opposed to gender violence, and free of women forced into prostitution.
