Ghost labourers

When the PP, led by Charo Bañuls , took office in June 2011, it became clear that there were people whose were registered for social security by the town but didn't actually have work contracts.

In total there were 45, mostly elderly women who benefited from this irregularity which dates back over 9 years to when José Joaquín Moya  was mayor and continued under his successor, Raúl Valerio Medina.They were supposedly hired under the Special Agricultural Scheme but their contracts were in fact just a simulation.

The ghost workers would have benefited from social security payments during so called “grace” periods and now collect pensions. 

The perpetrators and collaborators in this fraud now face a possible prosecution case led by the city and the city faces the possibility of a 60,000 euro fine.
