From May until the end of October, the Emaya municipal services agency in Palma will be taking on 205 new staff for street cleaning and refuse collection. Eighty-five people will be employed to reinforce the existing workforce and 120 will cover workers when they are on holiday. All these new employees will be on a 'fijo discontinuo' employment contract, which means that they have permanency from one year to the next, even if they only work for a six-month period. The town hall says that these employees will be deployed in the city's main tourist areas - the centre, Cala Major and Playa de Palma.
