As part of the fight against inflation, Pablo Moyano surprised by anticipating that in the coming days they will make a formal request to the national government to strengthen wages, beyond the joint agreements.
“There are about 6 million registered workers, but only 2 million receive child benefits. For this reason, we are going to request that this payment be universalized”detailed the referent of Truckers in statements on the radio futurock.
“It would help raise part of the employee’s salary and that money would be channeled into the domestic market. It would be important that, by an executive order or an act of Congress, this discrimination ceases and that all registered workers receive the family allowance per child.”summarized Moyano before explaining that the request will be addressed “to President Alberto Fernández, to his colleague Sergio Massa (due to his status as head of the Chamber of Deputies) and to ANSES”.
The trade unionist’s demand aims to seek alternatives that compensate for the permanent rise in prices, which is fundamentally observed in the value of food and other basic necessities.
“There is a growth in economic activity, the paritarias are free and bonuses have been granted to retirees and informal workers, but unfortunately not enough“warned the co-holder of the CGT. “The inflation it is eating up the wages of the workers and if this is not controlled, in three or four months the increases are diluted“, he predicts with concern.
For Pablo Moyano, the party in power cannot get around the rise in prices and must show authority right now: “need more strength to demand from these guys who flash all the time. It is impossible for Paolo Rocca to continue to control the market, the campaign controls the price of food… The government should sit them at a table and tell them “we’ve come this far, it’s not possible””.
Along the same lines, the trade unionist added that “there are difficult, crucial moments for next year”, it is therefore essential that the governing alliance manages to normalize the economy before the presidential elections: “This is the only tool the opposition clings to and we don’t want to go back to the right. There is growth, but if inflation is not controlled, the issue of parity will be difficult”he insisted.
Of course, Moyano is clear that to achieve this, it is essential that the ruling party solve its internal problems: “It hurts us to see the differences that exist in the Frente de Todos. I speak with Máximo (Kirchner), with Alberto (Fernández) with the governors and we try to create unity again. If tomorrow there is no agreement? Then everything will be defined in one big STEP”.
“We will make efforts to recompose this situation and end Alberto’s mandate by giving answers to the workers. If Cristina Kirchner can be a candidate? She will know, Alberto, Cristina, Massa some governor… We will make an effort to be all together or it will go to a big STEP “diagnosed with reference to the different internal currents of the Frente de Todos.
In addition, Moyano was consulted on the role of opposition and what are their chances for 2023: “There are lots of cats, smuts that come out to criticize each measure announced. This government is the only political sector that can provide answers in this difficult time. They (Together for Change) are coming for what they couldn’t do in 2015, which is to destroy all workers’ rights”.
Finally, despite the complex context that the country is going through, the truckers referent granted a credit of confidence to the Minister of the Economy Martin Guzman, who has long been the permanent target of criticism of Kirchnerism: “I have been with him two or three times, he explained the agreement with the IMF to me, he is very prepared and plays an important role. Time will judge… He promised us that there will be no adjustment and I don’t see that there is, because there are bonuses for retirees, parity is free, there are increases for colleagues from social movements…”.
“If we see that there is an adjustment plan, we will leave, but today I do not see it. What is worrying is the question of inflation, there may be a criticism of Guzmán “Completed.
