Cosse proposes increasing the amount of social plans by 50%

The former mayor of Montevideo and presidential candidate for the Frente Amplio, Carolina Cosseproposed a 50% increase in social plans as a way to combat child poverty, a premise that is part of its action plan to improve security.

The pre-candidate proposed increasing coverage of the population vulnerable by 25% and increase social plans by 50%. This is part of an “immediate action plan for security”, which includes a section to combat child poverty.

“We have proposed an immediate measure which is to increase benefits by 50% and universalize access, because there is 25% of the target population that is not reached by the system,” the politician explained in an interview with Telemundo.

In that sense, he spoke about child poverty in the Uruguay and assured that it is necessary to work to reduce inequality and violence. “There are some elements of society that stress it. We must work to reduce inequality and violence. The infantilization of poverty is one of those elements, of those chronic tensions that we experience,” she remarked.

Inequality and child poverty

During his presentation in early May, cosse pointed out that the inequality increased in the country, and that there are more than 500,000 people who earn less than 25,000 pesos. “100,000 more people than there were in 2020,” she commented.

“The child poverty It worries us all, it is around 20% or 21%,” remarked the Broad Front presidential candidate based on data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE). In that sense, he revealed that the 20% of the poorest households have 44% of children under 6 years of age, and that of every 1,000 households, about 146 have “moderate or serious insecurity issues.”

Within the framework of this proposal, which is part of its so-called “Country”, it also included the promotion of the economic autonomy of women. To achieve this, it will generate “a two-year work system with training, aimed at specific groups, such as young mothers with children in poor homes.”
