Every group of people deemed important in helping us through the pandemic is to be rewarded – eventually. Nurses will get a bonus followed by every other profession who will claim acknowledgement for their exceptional work when we needed them most. We all have our private list of these people from Food Bank Organisers to Bin Men emptying potentially germ laden waste each day. Everyone was a hero and now the day of reckoning is coming and promises made, have to be kept. The speedy introduction of the Minimum Vital Wage has begun to filter through to the most vulnerable in our society. It was obvious from day one of the pandemic that we have a huge underclass in Spain existing on next to nothing.
