    Macri implements pay freeze and eliminates 1.000 “political positions”

    “If Argentines chip in, all of us who are part of politics must make twice the effort and lead by example,” Macri said

    President Mauricio Macri said on Monday that government employees in Argentina won't receive pay raises this year as part of a string of measures aimed at cutting spending. Macri also announced the elimination of 1,000 “political positions” and the firing of family members appointed as advisers by government ministers. The measure is expected to save the government about US$75 million.
