A couple of my Argentine friends think that the effects will take a few years to show. They believe that once they see people being hit with sizeable indemnizations for part time employees they will decide to do their own cleaning. People may wait until their current part time domestics retire, move on or whatever and then NOT replace them. In the end, according to my friends, maids will be for the wealthy only. Yes, a form of easy employment for the unskilled will largely vanish. The measure guarantees the votes of a sector of the society and satisfies the populist tendencies of the government but ignores the long term effects. What will these women do? Become trash pickers?SaraSara said:This will probably result in many part-timers losing their jobs.
