Argentine workers held a funeral-like protest in the streets of Buenos Aires to mourn the wages’ death due to expected 90% inflation by the end of this year. “Before the middle of the month we don’t have any more salary, it’s not enough” Melisa Gargarello, a representative of the Front of Organizations in Struggle (FOL), told Reuters. The country’s official monthly minimum wage stands at 45,540 Argentine pesos ($334 USD) while a basic food basket for a regular family costs more than twice that amount.
