A few weeks before the start of the summer season in Ibiza they find a notable lack of personnel that threatens to not be able to serve all the tourists who will soon begin to arrive at the island.
63% of small entrepreneurs have recognized that they do not find valid workers to attend their businesses either because of lack of training or lack of candidates themselves.
Another problem is renting a house for the season and as explained by the secretary of the employers Maria Àngels Martí since the beginning of the year and “are suffering officials, police, doctors and teachers destined for the island.”
Currently the average rental price is around 1,600 euros for a two-room apartment. According to the spokesman of the Platform of Affected by the Rentals Luis Gozaga, is the most expensive of all Spain, located above cities like Barcelona or San Sebastián.
The situation has worsened in the last five years, and they are already expelling many residents who had been on the island for years. For seasonal workers, it is simply a utopia.
Many of those who took jobs last year have ended up living in clandestine camps or in their own vehicle, to prevent them from coming to work on the island and ultimately cost them money.
