'Most workers do not want to strike'

95 percent of people would have made to their jobs today, Cabinet Chief Aníbal Fernández said questioning Secretary General of the UTA transport union Roberto Fernández for affecting workers.

“There is no tax on jobs; it is a tax on high income that exists,” Fernández told reporters this morning as he arrived at the government house.

Queried about the general strike called by unions demanding a change in the income tax scheme, the head of ministers affirmed a mainstay of the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration was “the protection of the whole labour movement.”

“It should not be called income tax but tax on high income because what it does is to transfer resources from those who make good money to others receiving a social benefit,” he insisted as he ruled out sanctions on unions joining today’s protest action.

“We never talked about sanctions,” Fernández pointed out. He did step up his criticism against the UTA transport union saying the group headed by Roberto Fernández “must have between 7-8 percent of workers reached by the (income) tax.” “They are striking to defend the salaries of other unions’ workers.”

“They affect the people who want to go to work and they mock (about it) saying those who want to go to work should do it on bike.”
