Doubts about labour reform bill, but also about general strike
ThinkSpain , Friday, March 23, 2012

The majority of Spaniards (63.2%) believe that labour reform will contribute "little or nothing" to the decline in unemployment, but more people (47.6%) are against the general strike, than in favour (44.6%), according to a recent survey by Simple Logic.

The Gallup poll partner in Spain surveyed over a thousand respondents, and revealed striking differences in opinion on the walk-out called for March 29th, with age and political orientation particularly evident in the results.

significantly more young people are in favour of the general strike, with more than six in ten (61%) of under 35 year olds saying they thought it was a good idea, where as less than 50% of those over 35 agreed with the move, and only 20.2% of those over 65 year were in favour of it.

Moreover, while PP voters account for nearly eight in ten (77.3%) of those who are against the strike, and less than two in ten (17.9%) of those in favour, the proprtions are almost exactly reversed among PSOE voters, with 65.6% in favour and 28.8% against.

Amongst women, the proportion who are in favour of the strike (46.5%) is slightly higher than those who are against it (44.9%), while amongst men the situation is reversed: 50.4% are against it and 42.6% in favour.

The biggest differences of opinion, however, can be see in terms of people's political orientation and with regard to the potential effectiveness of the labour reform bill: 83% of PSOE voters think the proposed measures will have either little or no effect on reducing unemployment, whereas only 34.8% of PP voters were of the same opinion.
