Javier Miley took office on December 10

In the early hours of Tuesday (26/12), the new Argentine president, Javier Miley, published a decree prohibiting the renewal of contracts for public employees who were appointed less than a year ago.

In practice, this will lead to the dismissal of thousands of public employees whose contracts expire in December.

Casa Rosada did not reveal the total number of workers and services affected, but Argentine newspapers Clarin and La Nation estimate that about 7,000 workers have been laid off, based on government sources.

In addition, another 45,000 government employees hired for longer terms were placed on 90-day “monitoring” — meaning they could be fired at the end of that period.
