Thousands of Argentinian workers went on strike in Buenos Aires on Wednesday to protest against the mass public sector layoffs by Mauricio Macri's recently elected government as well as rocketing inflation. Protesters, organized by the Association of State Workers (ATE) and the Argentine Workers Union, waved flags, held banners and chanted slogans condemning the layoffs as they marched towards the presidential palace.
