- Argentina not likely to extend special layoff measures, Labor Minister says Thursday, November 25th 2021 – 18:48 UTC Full article They were two extraordinary measures for an extraordinary situation, Moroni said.
- Argentine Labor Minister Claudio Moroni Thursday said it was highly likely that the double severance money and the ban on dismissals decreed as a part of the emergency measures to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic will not be extended after December 31, since the economic situation was getting back to normal.
- As the situation is normalizing, because Argentina is growing, it is highly probable that these measures will end at the end of the year and will not be extended, Moroni said.
- The minister was also confident that by the time we can measure the situation of next December, which we will publish in February, we will at least have recovered all the jobs lost during the pandemic.
- Some businesses, such as manufacturing and construction, are above the number jobs they had before the pandemic, Moroni went on.
- Moroni’s words came during a speech at a technical school in the city of Campana.
- Leading businessman Paolo Rocca, owner of Techint, and Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) Chairman Daniel Funes de Rioja were present when Moroni made the announcements.
