Moyano says government 'absent' amid 'inflation, employment crisis'
The head of the anti-government CGT labour confederation Hugo Moyano has ramped up his criticism of the Kirchnerite administration questioning what he considered a “tremendous government absence” facing an “employment and inflation” crisis.
When President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner reappeared after a 40-day-period away from public stage, Moyano said “it was the biggest theatrical performance of her rule,” also targeting Labour Minister Carlos Tomada and Economy Minister Axel Kicillof.
“The Labour Secretariat of the Buenos Aires City has given much more responses to workers than the national labour minister has. There is carelessness towards unions that oppose to the government that affects not union leaders but workers,” the CGT secretary general said one day after the meeting he held with BA City Mayor Mauricio Macri and other trade union leaders. "The sooner 2015 comes the better," Moyano and Macri had agreed yesterday in reference to next year's presidential run.
