This is what people don't understand. There are businesses who are trying to implement positive social change with their products and hiring people in the community. They follow regulations to a T, and then find themselves bankrupt, the former employees now have to go work a Temp job as a security guard at Coto, making half the salary.As a business owner (and a progressive one if that that is fully compliant and voluntarily involved in community projects trying to generate a positive impact for the “other” side of Argentina) 100% agree.
Unfortunately, most businesses see an employee en-blanco as a “time bomb” due to the laws around employment and (in)flexibility in things like work hours and scope of jobs, meaning they would rather produce less, open less hours, or go understaffed rather than actually take the risk to grow or be more productive. Or worse still, do things under the table and exploit a workers desperation. It has little to do with actual “firings” and everything to do with risk. Especially in an uncertain climate like this where the success of your business is far from certain and demand for your goods/ services far from “stable”.
If no one wants to compromise, no one moves.
Anyone who criticizes this reality is free to use their money to start a business that employ people en blanco in Argentina and see for themselves the massive responsibility and liability this creates to see how disproportionate it is even compared to European countries like France or Germany.
This is the number one reason young Argentines complain about not having opportunities and suffer disproportionately from poverty, despite their keen willingness to work.
Any attempt to make these laws more sensible is met with "MACRI" while labor laws are so much better in advanced Western European markets.
