Not so different. Facundo Manes, Diego Santilli’s internal competitor in the electoral contest in the province of Buenos Aires de Juntos, is dedicated to proclaiming that he has infinite differences with “El Colo” to convince the electorate to vote for him. But the heart of his worldview contradicts his preaching: the doctor said this Thursday that the Argentina must move towards a “profound labor reform” post-pandemic and that coincides with Horacio Rodríguez Larreta’s statement that the compensation because dismissal is “an obstacle” for employers when hiring.
That he was born in the province of Buenos Aires and feels it and Santilli does not, that he has a vision from science of how to improve the fundamental problems of Argentina, that he wants to debate and they will not let him, that they attacked. him during the campaign because they fear that his list will prevail, that “more and more people who never voted for macrismo” will tell him on their travels that for the first time they are going to vote for Together for Change because he appears on the list. All those things he said in an interview on Radio Continental. And as always, he criticized the management of the Frente de Todos.
But he showed the thread that would make him lose the game of the 7 differences when they asked him what he thought of the statements of the Buenos Aires head of government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, who was in favor of eliminating severance pay so that workers pay their own insurance unemployment, as in the construction industry.
“Clearly, post-pandemic Argentina must move towards a profound labor reform because the world changed ”, Manes said.
But he did not respond promptly about the removal of severance pay. Faced with the healthy exercise of cross-examination, Manes did not hesitate to express his agreement: “Severance pay is an obstacle to hiring a worker“, said.
The opinion explains that beyond the desire to have a leading role within the macro-sectorial space, Manes knows where to align himself when choosing between employers and workers. And choose the entrepreneurs.
Because already it is widely proven that job insecurity does not lead to more work, which is the argument they use to hide the true intention of their ideas.
Between 1996 and 2019 there were periods of expansion, stabilization and contraction of salaried employment in private companies in Argentina. A changing dynamic that was not related to the existing labor regulations in each period, since this was always the same and, clearly, it was not the determinant of the behavior of formal employment. The proposal of Together for Change, expressed by Horacio Rodríguez Larreta this Tuesday in a television interview, is not the first opportunity in which the propatron sectors present proposals for flexibility or, directly, justified job insecurity in which “this will generate more jobs job”.
Time and again they come up against the empirical proof: that the supposed causality never holds. Reducing workers’ rights was historically synonymous with maximizing business profits, not creating more jobs.
