Capriles vows to create 450,000 jobs for the elderly
Henrique Capriles Radonski, the presidential candidate of opposition umbrella group Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), pledged to create the National Training Institute for the Elderly
Henrique Capriles Radonski, the governor of the central state of Miranda and presidential candidate of opposition umbrella group Unified Democratic Panel (MUD), presented a plan called "Your Second Chance" to the inhabitants of the state of Zulia (northwestern Venezuela), as part of his job creation plan.
Capriles said that 75,000 jobs for people over 45 years old will be created per year. It means that 450,000 jobs will be created in six years (the duration of the presidential term in Venezuela.)
He explained that elderly people will work part-time and the government will give tax incentives to companies that hire them.
Capriles also pledged to create the National Training Institute for the Elderly, where elderly people will train people over 45.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
