Interviews from Quito: Workers' National Strike in Ecuador

  • Whatsapp

In today's program, we discuss the general strike by workers in Ecuador against the government of Lenin Moreno. They are facing strong austerity measures, a labor reform, massive lay-offs in the public sector, higher prices for basic goods and that's just the beginning. It all points to the IMF multi million dollar loan to Ecuador, and of course it is given under these circumstances. To discuss that, we have Fernando Ibarra, head of the Labor Parliament of Ecuador.
