Op-Ed: Spain - Cruse and Associates Financial Press Releases
Posted Mar 19 2013 6:52am
Madrid - Got a tissue handy? Hope so, because this report may break your pea-pickin heart. It seems that unionized palace staff members who cook, clean and serve Spains Royal palaces are set to strike for the first time since Spain became a Democracy.
So, in a country where unemployment is more than 25 percent, one might ask ones self what has these cooks, maids, butlers and valets so teed off.
It seems the Royal government increased the servants work week from 35 to 37 hours. Hows that for indignity? Barely leaves a peasant time to catch a ball game. Adding salt to the wound, these 140 union servants to the Royal are being asked to forego 15 percent of their salaries for the good of austerity.
One might further wonder how these union servants decided to deal with the twin domestic slaps from the Royal elite whom they feed and dress.
It seems about 500 employees at Crown heritage sites across Madrid have been called to strike on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday when the palaces usually attract around 100,000 tourists.
Thatll show those royal pains in the purse the kind of union fire theyre playing with, right?
Well...not exactly. It turns out the royals also employ a platoon of private staff, so it is thought that Spain's Royal bloods will be spared the indignity of preparing their own meals, let alone scrubbing full-featured palace toilets or polishing gold-plated dinnerware.
