143,869 places for public workers

The Ministry of Finance and Public Function claimed this Tuesday the increase that public contracting has experienced since Pedro Sánchez acceded to the Government in 2018. According to data from the Executive, since then the Government has launched 143,869 places, compared to 63,394 of the mandate of Mariano Rajoy between 2012 and 2017.

The first years of the popular president were especially bloody for the public workers, since many more employees retired than were hired. This situation was changing in the last years of Rajoy, as the economy improved, and ended up turning with the return of the PSOE to power. The bleeding has stopped, but the workforce has barely increased despite how much it decreased in previous years. In July 2021 there were 516,400 state workers, only 4,000 more than at the worst moment under the PP mandate, according to the Statistical Bulletin of personnel at the service of Public Administrations. They are about 80,000 fewer than in 2011.
