    REF: “Unemployment in Argentina”

    I was under the wrong impression that the jealousy & competition exists between AR & BR in football only:

    After the anti-democratic bitch move Macri pulled on José Luis Espert, I'm looking forward to when he must escape Casa Rosada in a chopper - and subsequently suffer the same destiny as Menem's son. What a creep, what an absolute girly-man Macri is.

    There are two issues to handle:

    #1º: A country NEEDS to make the two ends meet


    #2º: A country mustn't allow the politicians to make their own ends meet, at the cost of the population.

    Oh, do Argentines really line up for a job?

    I thought, from reading posts in MP, that “Argies” did not like to work. So the story photo must be a fake and surely part of a Kirchnerist plot to tarnish the government of Mauricio Macri, who everybody knows, had promised “zero poverty” when campaigning in 2015.

    Everybody knows that Macri, a champion of days off work, sincerely desires that Argentines do work. He has even created a program in partnership with McDonald's to provide first employment to youth. He so dearly wants Argentines to work, he said they should even work Saturdays and Sundays -- collective bargaining be damned.

    These are only a few of the perks of the Joyful Revolution. Can't wait to get to October!
