Peru prime minister says teachers’ and doctors’ strike ‘makes no sense’

0

Peruvian Prime Minister Juan Jimenez has questioned the country’s teacher and doctors’ strike, and said the protestors “make no sense.”

"I do not know if the leaders are properly informed," Jimenez said, adding that the government had already approved reforms in the health and education sectors, which included a restructuring of wages, El Comercio reported.

“We have proposed a series of increments within a new scale, and there’s been a proposal to make an immediate bonus equivalent to the salary of EsSalud physicians,” Jimenez added.

Meanwhile, Minister of Finance Luis Miguel Castilla has also been critical of doctors’ strike, and urged them to end the protests.

“Faced with blackmail, faced with extortion, I think this does not create a society of understanding,” Castilla said according to El Comercio.

“We will continue to be open to see the communication points that are necessary.”
