For her part, the minister responded to Eduardo Belliboni, leader of the Polo Obrero, that, instead of making protests, he should take the holders of Potentiar Trabajo who have not yet been able to validate their data to the ministry building, so that they can carry out the process. .

Belliboni’s response to the minister
After the minister’s pronouncements about the camp of the picketers and her insistence on validating the data, Eduardo Belliboni replied: “That the minister leave the country where she lives and that she attend to the problems of the people, since she is the The State is responsible for reaching each place and not the workers without sufficient resources or means”.
In addition, the organizations argued that the solution is not to bring people to the ministry, since validation problems occur throughout the country: “In El Impenetrable, in Chaco, there are workers who do not have electricity or internet and who have not been able to be validated despite the minister’s commitments. Even fewer can urgently travel to CABA “.
And they added: “The minister acts as a provocateur when in entire parts of the country there is no light or connection or there are few cell phones suitable for virtual auditing. In entire strips of the Buenos Aires suburbs, water is even scarce. The government is responsible for the suffering of the working population and blames them for losing their meager income”.
