October has marked a slight decrease in the affiliation of foreign workers to Social Security in Euskadi, a reflection of fluctuations in the region's labor market. This month there was a loss of 137 foreign affiliates, a figure that, although small, offers an interesting perspective on the composition and dynamics of the workforce in Euskadi. In a broader context, these numbers allow us to better understand the diversity and employment trends among workers of various nationalities in the Basque Autonomous Community.

Profile and origin of foreign affiliates in Euskadi

The data reveal that the vast majority of 92.315 foreign affiliates in Euskadi come from outside the European Union, with Morocco, Colombia, Nicaragua and Venezuela being the most common countries of origin. This diversity in the origin of workers reflects not only the historical and cultural connections, but also the current migratory currents that influence the socioeconomic fabric of Euskadi.

On the other hand, a significant number of affiliates come from European countries, led by Romania, Portugal, Italy and France. This mix of workers from inside and outside the EU adds a layer of complexity to the analysis of the labor market in the region, showing how Euskadi has become an attractive destination for workers from different corners of the world.

Labor and social implications of affiliation

La Most of these workers are registered in the general Social Security regime, with a notable percentage of self-employed and employees in sectors such as the home, agriculture and maritime. These figures not only speak of the economic contribution of foreign workers to Euskadi, but also its integration into different key sectors of the economy.

In the national context, the proportion of foreign workers in Social Security is significant, which underlines the importance of understanding migration and labor dynamics not only in Euskadi, but throughout Spain. These data can be crucial for designing employment and social policies that effectively respond to the needs of a diverse workforce.

The panorama of foreign affiliation in Euskadi offers us a valuable vision of how migration and the labor market are intertwined, influencing the economy and society of the region. These trends, although subject to monthly change, are indicative of broader patterns that deserve continued attention and analysis.
