President Cristina Fernandez addressed the Argentine Congress on Sunday for the last time before the end of her term of office, highlighting the gains made during her administration. Hundreds of thousands of supporters gathered in the streets surrounding Congress to listen to Fernandez’s speech. They applauded the successful economic, industrial, technological, and social policies implemented during both the government of Fernandez and her late husband, President Nestor Kirchner. During her speech, Fernandez also highlighted that Argentina today has the highest minimum wage in Latin America, an achievement she says has only been possible by implementing social welfare policies and increasing income equality.
