Gov't defends bill to tackle informal work
The cabinet chief highlighted the bill to fight unregistered work that President Kirchner submitted to Congress yesterday, saying it will reinforce controls by the Labour Ministry.
In his daily message to the press at the Government House, Jorge Capitanich pointed out that unregistered employment has dropped to 33 percent over the past years adding that the Kirchnerism-sponsored bill will promote “the creation of an employers register and (increase) the regulation capacity" of the office run by Labour Minister Carlos Tomada.
Meanwhile, the head of ministers confirmed he will be travelling to the province of La Rioja later today where he is expected to sign an agreement with local unions to guarantee social security rights for winemaking workers at the Chilecito region.
The chief of staff of the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration was also expected to fly to the Catamarca province on Tuesday but he was forced to suspend his visit to the Alumbrera mining camp due to bad conditions of the landing runway at the Coronel Felipe Varela provincial airport.
