The president of the Chamber of Deputies, Sergio Massa, assured today that “the head and heart of the Government are focused on growing and generating employment”, highlighting the project of the ruling party that seeks to convert social plans into “genuine work” and “economic relief” for SMEs that generate employment.
In statements made to Radio 10, Massa said that the initiative of his authorship called “A bridge to employment” aims to “get out of the precarious situation, not only for those who have a plan but for those who are in the black.”
In this context, the head of the Lower House stressed that “the head and heart of the Government must be set on growing and generating employment,” and stressed that “it is time to get out of the emergency and move on to a growth process.” .
In giving details of the project, Massa said that its main objective is to “transform, gradually and with federal criteria, plans, social programs and social security benefits into quality formal work.”
In that sense, he said that the initiative of the ruling party offers tools for SMEs that “represent 60% of the employment generated in Argentina”; and to the worker, by “recognizing pension contributions, the right to ART and social work.”
On the other hand, Massa assured that after the legislative elections of November 14 they will open “a dialogue to seek 10 State policies to give Argentina a process of growth and development for the next 20 years.”
“I talked about it with the President (Alberto Fernández) and he totally agrees,” he stressed about this initiative.
Regarding the opposition, he estimated that after November 14 it will be “forced to sit at the table” due to its institutional responsibilities, although now “it is forced by an electoral issue to bite our hand.”
Now “it is more leveraged in showing itself as a contrast to the government than in presenting an economic development program to Argentina,” he added.
He also considered that “there is no single look” in Together for Change. “I do not perceive that forward they have the same look,” he remarked.
