The Minister for Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, José Luis Escrivá, announced this Wednesday an increase in social security contributions, which is estimated at 30,000 net workers for the month of July, seasonally adjusted.

“Despite the complicated context, it will be a good month in terms of job creation,” Escrivá said at the press conference unveiling membership data.

With the July recovery, Social Security registers around 300,000 more members in the first seven months of the year and an increase of 650,000 workers since the start of the pandemic.

Noting that employment is “very extensive and generalized,” particularly in the scientific and technical fields, Escrivá stressed that hospitality, which was “further behind,” is regaining pre-pandemic levels of affiliation.

The hospitality industry already has 1,703,476 members, according to July data presented by the minister, returning to levels similar to February 2020 after around 300,000 jobs in the sector were destroyed during the pandemic.


Escrivá blames the labor reform passed at the end of 2021 for “improving the quality of employment”, with a “growing increase” in the stability and duration of contracts.

“In the first seven months, average employment growth was similar to 2017-2019, which were very good years from an employment perspective,” said the minister, who also stressed that membership numbers continue to rise above the threshold of 20 million contributors.

For the Autonomous Communities, most show positive growth, albeit “with significant differences”. The head of social security specifically referred to Madrid, which “has practically 0% job growth and is dragging down a bit”.

In terms of quality of employment, 1,125,000 more permanent contracts were signed than in pre-pandemic years, while for permanent contracts the growth is 440,000, according to Social Security data.

Additionally, the average length of signed and canceled contracts has increased from 18.7 days in 2019 to 23 days in 2022, a 23% increase.

“In a particularly remarkable way, the labor reform ensures more stability and duration in all contracts,” Escrivá specifies.

During his presentation, the minister also noted that there was a stabilization in the employee leasing files (ERTE) and that these were “at a very low level month after month”.

Referring to the social security survey, Escrivá recalled that in the first half of the year there had been growth of 8.5%, the result of “this greater job creation and the dynamism of the labor market”.
