Labour bill aims at 28% of informal jobs for 2015
The Kirchnerism-sponsored labour market bill aims at dropping unregistered jobs to 28 percent in 2015 following a personal “conviction” of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner,” the head of ministers has stated.
“It is part of the president’s conviction to use tools to reduce labour informality,” Jorge Capitanich told reporters at the government house this morning.
Aligned with statements by Labour Minister Carlos Tomada who yesterday questioned certain unions – mainly the UATRRE rural workers’ union commanded by anti-Kirchnerite Gerardo “Momo” Venegas -, for not fighting black economy jobs, the cabinet chief pointed out the government hopes to take informal labour force to 28 percent next year, currently at 33 percent.
Earlier this week, President Kirchner announced she was submitting a bill to Congress to address changes in the labour market and reduce unregistered jobs. The Senate will start addressing the project next week.
