A Spanish budget airline has been heavily criticised for charging candidates who wish to work with them 60 Euros (£45) per interview.
With unemployment in Spain at 21%, the airline recently had 2,000 applicants applying for 250 positions.
If they’d interviewed them all they would have made £90,000.
A representative of Spanish trade union, USO, condemned this as:
“...a disgraceful and abusive new measure which only contributes to making it harder for people to access employment.”
A spokesperson for the airline wouldn’t comment on the controversy, merely stating that the company was “very pleased” with the selection process.
As well they might be.Return to the blog archive »
