Union leader calls “ruthless” Social Security a “fraud”
Santo Domingo. – Dominican Republic’s Social Security (SS) system yesterday received another blow to its image, just two days after the Transparency and Justice Foundation called it “ruthless.”
Federation of Unions president Rafael Abreu (Pepe) said the law that creates the SS is a fraud against workers.
He said the initiative has only served to impoverish workers even more, extracting their funds which in his view circulate only among the “companies of the rich, while the true owners languish.”
Interviewed by Adriano Sanchez on the program “Deasafios por TV,” the union leader demanded sweeping amendments to the law, to in his words, reach a true social security.”
