Support Grows for Argentina Strike
By TONY SMITH, AP Business Writer
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - The country's biggest trade federation will
participate in an all-day strike aimed at protesting the nation's spiraling
debt woes and its four-year recession.
``We back the national stoppage,'' said Rodolfo Daer, general secretary of
the General Confederation of Labor, known by its Spanish acronym CGT. He
said the protest would be ``the start of a campaign to defend and recover
our salaries.''
Speaking at a union meeting Monday, Daer said he held Economy Minister
Domingo Cavallo personally responsible not only for failing to drag South
America's second-largest economy out of recession, but also for forcing
middle class Argentines to foot the bill.
