Criticism of the mayor of Buenos Aires for the obstacles of the mayors of Makrista to the reward announced by Massa
Secretary General of the Federation of Buenos Aires Municipalities Federations, Rubén “Cholo” García, criticized the Mayors of Together for Change who refuse to grant the fixed sum of 60,000 pesos announced by the national government and asserted that they have an ideology that workers in this sector are “slaves”.
“We are in a state of emergency,” said the union leader. “The municipal workers have lagged behind in terms of the economic realities of the country: in many places we have salaries of 40,000 pesos.”
“We are used to yellow mayors telling you we don’t have money when it is necessary to discuss increases,” García emphasized. He also said “we have to see why they don’t have money: they are bad administrators or they use the money for something else. Many have billions of pesos on fixed terms, like Lanos, Tres de Febrero.”
In this sense, he warned that obtaining large amounts of money with specific conditions and paying low salaries is “not ethical”. He added, “The ideology adopted by Al-Asfar is that municipal workers are slaves.”
Finally, the Secretary General of Visimobo warned that the refusal of the provinces to pay the fixed amount would “certainly lead to confrontation”.
The mayors of Together for Change in Buenos Aires say they cannot pay the fixed amount without extraordinary help.

Business, you find us in a state of severe financial constraints and the lack of resources necessary to implement Perform such procedure as mentioned.
They later said: “We understand the effect of this accommodation which seeks to mitigate the acceleration in the decline in household income, which is the product of the recent devaluation which further exacerbates this long and growing inflationary process.”
However, they asked for “the provision of an exceptional fund that would allow the measure to be implemented in every region of our territory without stopping the financing of municipalities or changing their work at a time when it is necessary to be able to maintain their ability to respond.”
