Outrage of a Corrientes merchant: “Alberto and Cristina starve us worse than Macri”

Carlos Odena, businessman and owner of Locos Por el Polo, spoke with the Radio dos Pro Breakfast program. He analyzed the economic reality of a country which beats the private sector. He demanded that politicians be able to negotiate a way out of the crisis.

“We want to grow by investing, many businessmen patting us on the back for employing many people” Odena said. He told that he directly employs more than 40 people.

“I have employees who have been working with me for 8 or 10 years, they are part of the family. When he tries to keep the investment, it’s because he doesn’t want to leave a team behind” Told.

In addition, he noted that “I’m doing well for every day’s effort, be it paddling in the dulce de leche in the absent position. They don’t give you the possibility to get profit, they are always there to charge you only. It generates mental and physical fatigue,” commented Odena.

Demand to maintain price and quality

Odena recalled, “I have chicken businesses, products that are linked to the ups and downs of the economy on a daily basis. When we launched chicken with potatoes 5 years ago, it cost 200 pesos And today it’s 1,900 pesos.”

He also indicated that the ten empanada was 100 pesos and the chicken roll was 300 and has now risen to 2,300 pesos. “For profitability like five years ago, I have to sell chicken for 2,800, but I sell it for 1,900 because I am aware of the reality of the country and I have to retain customers,” he says.

He said, “We have a unit that has lunched with us for 5 years, we want to maintain the quality of the product with inputs from the best brands. Sometimes you have to adjust the selling price to maintain the quality “

private sector punishment

Odena says that the national government and the policies it adopts punish the private sector. “There is no real promotion of private employment, the state persecutes and punishes private investment. The country’s development is impossible under these circumstances,” he lamented.

“In the situation of normal employment in neighboring countries, the employer can increase, but here it is very difficult,” he assured.

“We’re Worse Than Macree”

Odena remembers that he was a political official for many years. “I looked when I saw that it does not connect and it is impossible to change anything,” he assured.

“You are completely different from the reality that people live in, those who control the reality have no idea,” he said. “They never took any risk or invested anything, they stay away from government and like mushrooms”

“Prices are tied to the blue dollar, you have to say things as they are”

Regarding the policy taken by the national government, he said that “we voted them to fix the four disastrous years of Macrismo, we thought we were going to move on but we are worse than Macri.”

“Politics is not working and putting it together to move forward. Discussions are on for a status quo. Country and province project is not happening. We need them to let go of the pettiness, we all have commons. Something will have to be given for good,” he assured.
