The Labor Day act is scheduled to take place at the intersection of the Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio, from 2 p.m.. The movements, which have been organizing the march for weeks, hoped to mobilize”300,000 characters”. Beyond the probability of gathering this number, the mobilization will be massive.

Despite the closeness of the organizations to the President and the show of support that the act could signify, Alberto Fernandez will not participatethey anticipated both in UTEP and in the Executive.

The president also anticipated the May Day celebration. While Máximo Kirchner again criticized his Minister of Economy, Martin Guzmanin plenary session of the PJ of Buenos Aires, Alberto Fernández performed a brief actlow profile, in a road job in San Vicente.

“On this Labor Day, now that we’ve kicked off the economy, I promise you that every minister and every government official will be the minister of salaryso that the salary, once and for all, is recomposed in Argentina, ”said the president in front of the construction workers.

Although Cristina Kirchner responds to sector criticism intensifies against Minister Guzmán and the government’s economic policy, Fernández avoids referring to internal politics. At the Presidency, they consider that the dispute is seriously hampering the management and it also affects the communication of the “good news.”

Be that as it may, the president’s sentence seemed more directed towards the CGT that, dissatisfied with the executive, will not mobilize this Sunday. The workers’ union limited itself to issuing a statement on Friday, also before Labor Day, in which warned against inflation and described as “temporary” the government’s measures to try to moderate the loss of purchasing power.
