‘Young people don’t get paid less because they are young’

Date:

The general manager of the Knowledge Industry and Technology cluster has indicated that salaries for young people recently established in companies in the sector are between 1,300 and 1,900 euros, which in his opinion ‘is not a low salary and is in line with market valuation ‘. line”.

Tomas Iriondo, general manager of the Knowledge and Technology Industries cluster of Euskadi (GAIA), has indicated that salaries for young people who have recently started working for companies in the sector are between 1,300 and 1,900 euros, which in his opinion “is not a low salary and is in line with market valuation.” “Young people don’t get paid less because they are young,” he emphasized.

Iriondo thus referred to the words of the president of Kutxabank, Anton Arriola. The president of the financial entity stated on Monday that the salaries of young people are “extremely low” and believes that the private sector must “get involved” to resolve this situation. “Young people are getting a reward that is not fair,” he said.

On the contrary, Iriondo believes that “we are not beyond the reach of the reward and moreover We offer a professional career plan and training. We already know that the residence “It is very expensive… but we have to look at the medium and long term.” However, in an interview on Radio Euskadi, Iriondo stated that “that housing is expensive is not the responsibility of the employer, but of the ecosystem.”

The general manager of GAIA believes that “the economic condition for young ages should be a career plan.” “The vision should be what environment each professional itinerary offers,” he emphasized. Moreover, he recalled that “part of the education and training of young people takes place in companies once they have completed their regulated training path at universities or FP.”

On the other hand, Iriondo has recognized that “We have no birth rate”. “If there were more people we would have more opportunities for professional profiles, now we have a lack of highly specialized professional profiles in the sector,” he explained.

“Are we more attractive than Germany?”, asks the general manager of GAIA. “In some things no, in others yes, economically probably not, in terms of quality of life yes,” he replied. In Iriondo’s words, young people from other areas who call Euskadi, attracted by the ecosystem of infrastructure, technological commitments and job opportunities, are more attractive than the average for the Spanish state.

“It is a global struggle, affecting all countries, the most developed countries more directly, and the less developed indirectly,” he concluded.
