A dynamic reaction by the Corriente Nacional Agustín Tosco (CONAT), WFTU affiliate in Argentina.

The announcements of Minister Batakis on the reduction of the fiscal deficit, freezing the hiring of personnel in the National State and the ratification of the commitment of the agreement with the IMF, mark a course that can only bring hunger to the Argentinean people and a militant response in the streets of Argentina is required.

The workers of Argentina must fight for a universal basic income, a reduction in working hours without affecting income in order to create jobs, a general increase in wages, pensions, and social programs against inflation, a permanent tax on large fortunes, and a freeze on food prices.
