Likewise, they denounced that as a job opportunity they are offered “an alternative of six months for 5,000 pesos per month”, but that in this way “the only thing that is done is to keep poverty alive”; and if you get a job, you lose “staying in the shelter” as well as “you don’t have a dining room or the TUS [Uruguay Social Card].
