Officials at the National Archaeological Museum say laziness in the face of job insecurity is real. The number of employees, which was decreasing, according to La Razon, could not be sustained after decades as the workforce was being eroded “little by little”.
“It doesn’t matter which government we have. It’s not a matter of colors or ministers, and nobody has done anything to improve the situation. Nobody! Injuries are not covered and here we are losing vacation days we charge,” closing new rooms due to lack of security guards.
The question about the situation “in loco” is to reveal a thunder box among those who live the daily life of the museum. It doesn’t take long for the questioner to compete with two of his peers: “They’re from the [CC OO] Guild and they’ll explain it better to you.” And that’s what it takes away from us, before the task force that spent years checking the workforce decline that ended up exploding after the 2020 pandemic. “We’ve gotten a lot worse. They gave up on us”, they judged.
Rooms are Closed to the Public
“It’s just that, while we’re still like this, they’re going to close soon because there’s no people to rummage through the rooms.” And so it became. He said and did. They spoke knowingly because those times (the 80s and 90s) when there were “six people in each district” now seem like a utopia to them.
Survival figures were reached after the museum was “cut” in half, because the part about money (“currency, something more than money”) is evident by its absence. “Temporarily closed,” a sign at the entrance explains without providing further explanation. “Recently painted”, reads the other, this one is already on the tray, although it does not smell, nor is it to be expected, of any kind of remodeling. Medieval and modern times? Also closed. “And the copy of Altamira cannot be seen either.”
