Faced with an economic downturn, Argentina’s government created the “Programa de Asistencia de Emergencia al Trabajo y la Producción”. A fund available to companies that can’t manage current expenses, particularly their workers’ salaries. Sadesa had made its request about a month ago, and it has now been granted.
The State has granted Sedesa with a sum equal to 39.2 million pesos (about 521,000 euro) to be split among 1,426 workers. The money will be directly deposited into the workers’ accounts with a value of 50% their usually perceived net salary, with the minimum salary set at 16,875 pesos and the maximum at 33,750 pesos. At the same time, Sadesa has also announced it has reached an agreement with labor unions to have additional guarantees over its workers’ salaries for at least 30 days.
