Once the unit has been achieved in most of the lists, the Government accelerates economic measures to seduce two of the sectors hit hardest by the crisis and the pandemic: youths and the SMEs.
The Chief of Cabinet Santiago Cafiero In the company of mayors and the first candidate for deputy of the ruling party, Victoria Tolosa Paz, presented in an industrial park of Almirante Brown the Te Sumo Program with which it will subsidize labor incorporation young people between 18 and 24 years old with complete secondary studies, a segment that –according to the polls they handle in the ruling party– used to identify with Kirchnerism and is increasingly disenchanted with the country’s politics and overall prospects.
The horizon of the youngest is darker than that of the rest of the population. The half of the unemployed reported by INDEC in March (10.2%) they are young people under 30. 17% of men under 30 do not have a job. The situation of women it is even more dramatic: 24.9 do not find a job. The number grew in relation to the first quarter of 2020. The pandemic widened the gap, because the sectors that took off such as private construction, public works and manufacturing use men as their workforce.
That’s how crude he is diagnosis with whom the Casa Rosada works and recognized by the Minister of Productive Development Matías Kulfas, one of the ideologues of the brand new program, together with his work partner, Claudio Moroni.
I add you. The launch of the program. Santiago Cafiero, with Claudio Moroni and Tolosa Paz.
The initiative aimed at micro, small and medium companies consists of two stages. The first six months will be job training, but the beneficiaries will receive for 4 hours of work a compensation of $ 15 thousand, which will be financed in its entirety or 80 percent -depending on the size of the company- by the State. The second six months, the young people will sign a traditional employment contract, for which the companies will receive a contribution to the salary of between $ 21 thousand and $ 31 thousand Y reductions of between 90 and 95 of employer contributions and to social security. SME entrepreneurs will pay between 30 and 40 percent of the labor cost they should face. The State contribution will be greater if the new employees are women or of dissident sexualities.
The Executive decided to articulate the program – which will initially have 50 thousand jobs – with the employment offices of the municipalities. In other words, social organizations were left out of this instrumentation that administer the million official employment plans. Consulted by Clarion, the organizations said they were unaware of the new program.
The Evita Movement, which was displaced in the closing of lists in the City and with a distant 16th place for Daniel Menéndez in the Province, looks with suspicion at the imminent disembarkation of Juan Zabaleta in Social Development. In Córdoba, in addition, they were associated with Governor Juan Schiaretti, outside the FdT; and in Santa Fe they bet on the Minister of Defense Agustin Rossi, whose candidacy the Casa Rosada wanted to cancel. The new youth employment plan is incompatible with Empower Work and its branch of scholarships for young people (Power Youth). Kulfas and Moroni hope to define some kind of connection with the successor to Daniel Arroyo.
In the Executive, they relativize the risks of superimposing programs. Going for a casualty would not be as dramatic as it is with swallow crop workers. A 20-year-old woman would receive (in the second semester of the program) a net salary of $ 43,000, triple that of a plan.
The Government, however, is betting with the new plan to benefit middle and lower middle sectors. The Te Sumo Program is aimed at young people with completed high school studies in a country where before the pandemic only 5 out of 10 students finished high school in a timely manner and 3 out of 10 abandoned it. The pandemic only aggravated that diagnosis. The organizations had claimed
Cafiero – surrounded by mayors of Greater Buenos Aires – did not avoid the exodus ghosts that shook Mauricio Macri and even appealed to personal effort. “We are generating new tools so that the youths have a job opportunity. Then it will depend on each and every one of you, but it is the State that has to provide opportunities. (…) Do not go that Argentina is beginning to turn the page, not only of the pandemic, but also of the disappointment and hopelessness of the last government, ”declared the coordinating minister.
