Argentina’s President Javier Milei unveiled plans to slash 70,000 government jobs as part of austerity measures amidst the country’s deepening economic woes.

Speaking at the International Economic Forum of the Americas in Buenos Aires, Milei outlined his “chainsaw-style” approach, which includes suspending public works and cutting provincial budgets and social welfare programs.

While facing criticism, Milei assured that social policies won’t be neglected, with increased subsidies for food and schooling.
