Vox alerts its supporters about a Maghrebi YouTuber who encourages people to come to Spain because with the Basic Universal Income “you earn more” than working

This Tuesday Rubén Pulido, Press and Communication secretary for VOX in Andalusia, condemned the way a Maghrebi YouTuber mocks the ‘high welfare benefits of Universal Basic Income’. ‘He boasts that you earn more than working in the fields and suggests that now with Spain (economically) sunk you live better because they have access to more welfare benefits,’ explains Pulido, who asks: ‘Doesn’t this act as a mass invitation to come to Spain?’ (“efecto llamada”).

‘Newspapers say the Spanish government has finally decreed that benefits be increased to as much as 2,000 euros of Universal Basic Income. Some 1,015 maybe. God knows, let’s hope it is so, for taking care of the children. And they say it will be compatible with another benefit, for example, in the Basque Country region, if you have children, many children, three children… with the supplies for them, you can obtain from 1,200 to 1,250 euros,’ states the Maghrebi YouTuber whose content Rubén Pulido re-shared on his social media accounts, and that also the national account of VOX has re-shared.

‘It follows,’ continues the YouTuber, ‘that if you don’t work and are charged with the care of minors, you qualify for the benefit that would combine 1,015 euros for taking care of the family with 1,250 euros. A total of 2,265 euros per couple, while the person who works in agriculture, in the fields, among us in Almería, ha ha ha, works for 800 or 900 euros. When Spain was well-off and there were jobs and industriousness, if you went to ask for a benefit of 400 euros, you were told you had no right to it.’
