Hospitality sector say closing for such long periods is 'unsustainable'
With the support of the General Council of Chambers of Catalonia, the hospitality sector warns that debts, exacerbated by the shutting of businesses, "drown" families.
"The Catalan government has not shown the necessary sensitivity to understand the despair of employers and workers in the sector," criticized the president of the Federation of Hospitality of Lleida, Josep Castellarnau, in reading a manifesto agreed with the sector.
The representatives also demanded financial aid to compensate for losses and the waiving of taxes, both state and municipal. "The situation of Catalonia’s hospitality sector, totally shut for 40 days, is unsustainable," Castellarnau affirmed.
