Covid-19 Self-Employed Losses in Spain
The ATA (Asociación de Trabajadores Autónomos) recorded a larger loss of self-employed women. At the end of June there were 13,491 fewer self-employed women than at the end of 2019, while 10,345 men were lost. In percentage terms, this means that the drop among women was 1.1%, compared to the 0.5% drop for men.
According to Lorenzo Amor, president of the ATA, the loss of self-employed workers is set to continue through 2020. “Everything indicates that a strong loss of freelancers will begin in July and we have a very hard autumn ahead of us.”
