All governments have turned the social security in a little cash register, according to Alfonso Yanez
Alfonso Yanez, president of the Coordinator of the Organization of Retirees and Pensioners, said during an interview with Ecuavisa that the last increase of retirement pensions is another outrage of the government. According to Yanez, pensions have been cut for 2016.
He insisted that the latest rise in pensions has undermined, diminished the rights of pensioners, that’s the reality. He recalled that the Constitution and the Law on Social Security has the obligation to contribute the 40% of the pension fund, and pay debts, “we are not asking for a favor.”
