"These are not the latest decisions that are going to take," Zapatero said in his appearance, in which he insisted the Government's first objective was "to support workers, families and businesses that have more difficulties." The measures, which together will benefit more than four million citizens, are divided into two packages: one is direct aid to families with difficulties to cope with their mortgage payments, and secondly, measures to promote employment, especially among the population. Among the former, the president announced a "temporary partial moratorium" to facilitate the payment of mortgage fees to people who have problems to do so. Thus, workers who lose their jobs and are entitled to benefits, the self-employed with family who have had to close his business or credited a reduction of their income to three times the indicator of public rental multiple effects (Iprem ), Ie 1550.70 per month, or who will become pensioners widow's family may benefit from this measure, which will be in force from January 1 2009 and December 31 of 2010. The moratorium will mean that those who request it and meet the requirement that your mortgage is prior to September 1 this year, not exceeding 170,000 euros and is normally home to be able to defer payment of 50% of its shares for two years, up to a maximum of 500 euros per month. The payment of the amounts deferred will be prorated from January 1 2011 in quotas until the end of the mortgage, with a maximum of ten years, and the State guarantees the amounts deferred with a loan from the ICO. "We believe that the measure could affect more than 500,000 people," he said. Zapatero insisted that this aid is intended "for workers with difficulties" by what he described as "reasonable" amount of 170,000 euros set as the maximum mortgage. "It does not seem logical that the State undertakes public guarantees for those who can pay their mortgage, even if they cost a little more," he said. But this was not the only ad, and others confirmed that, made last week, as the extension of the deadline for investing the savings account balance housing, which will benefit some 180,000 people, or the bonus of 1,500 euros per year to businesses who hire unemployed people with family responsibilities. Similarly, with regard to the promotion of employment, Zapatero announced that it will increase to 60% capitalization of unemployment for those who have been unemployed and choose to start as autonomous. It was also awarded bonuses to Social Security for the creation of new jobs on the part of strategic enterprises, aimed at changing the production model, such as renewable energy or technological innovation.
