Fewer pirate workshops and more self-employed in Almeria

MORE than 30 per cent of Spain’s unregistered car repair workshops are located in Andalucia.

There are around 3,000 post-sales garages operating outside the law in the region, maintained GANVAM, Spain’s national association of car salespeople, mechanics and spare parts suppliers.

Unfair competition encouraged by price-conscious consumers is making a difficult situation even worse, GANVAM pointed out during a recent meeting of more than 200 sales and car repair employees.

Sevilla and Cadiz account for more than 30 per cent of the sector’s pirate activities, followed by Malaga with 15 per cent. Almeria, in contrast, has fewer than any other Andalucia province, with just 0.1 per cent.

The latest Social Security figures from Andalucia’s Statistics Office put Almeria at the head of another list in direct opposition to piracy, as the province has proportionately more self-employed workers than any other Andalucia province.

Autonomous workers represent 17.5 per cent of Andalucia’s total workforce with 20.8 per cent registered in Almeria Province.

The number of self-employed workers increased throughout Andalucia over the last year, with men accounting for 65.6 per cent of the regional total.
