BUKELĖS TRIUMFAS: Salvadoro „Žavingasis tironas“ perrinko

BUKELĖS TRIUMFAS: Salvadoro „Žavingasis tironas“ perrinko

- Salvadoro prezidentas Nayibas Bukele, išdidžiai nešiojantis „žaviausio planetos tirono“ etiketę, šį sekmadienį šventė lemiamą pergalę per rinkimus. JAV valstybės sekretorius Antony Blinken suskubo pasveikinti, pagyrė rinkimų stebėtojų pastangas ir išreiškė pasirengimą bendradarbiauti su naujai išrinktais pareigūnais po jų birželį inauguracijos.

Blinkenas pabrėžė ilgalaikį JAV ir Salvadoro ryšį – santykius, kurie tęsiasi daugiau nei pusantro amžiaus. Jis tvirtino, kad įvykiai Salvadore turi tiesioginių pasekmių JAV interesams šalyje ir užsienyje. Be to, jis patvirtino, kad geras valdymas, įtraukus ekonomikos augimas, sąžiningo teismo proceso užtikrinimas ir žmogaus teisės išliks svarbiausios pagal jų pagrindinių priežasčių strategiją.

Preliminarūs rinkimų rezultatai rodo, kad Bukele iškovojo pergalę, surinkęs stulbinantį 83 proc. palaikymo procentą, o artimiausias varžovas atsilieka tik 7 proc. Pasitikėjęs prezidentas jau buvo paskelbęs save nugalėtoju prieš paskelbiant oficialius rezultatus, tvirtindamas, kad surinko daugiau nei 85% balsų.

Drąsus ITALIJOS pasitraukimas iš Kinijos juostos ir kelio iniciatyvos: Vakarų nepriklausomybės triumfas

- Italy recently declared its departure from China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), signifying a major shift in Western attitudes towards Beijing’s economic clout. After four years of involvement, Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani noted that nations not participating in the initiative have seen superior results.

The official withdrawal notice was issued by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s administration this week, well before the initial agreement expires next year. This decision sets the stage for an upcoming summit hosted by China with European Union leaders who have lately adopted a more wary stance towards Beijing.

In response to mounting skepticism, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi advocated for mutually beneficial relationships between Europe and China to boost global development. However, such views are increasingly met with suspicion in Europe as Western societies strive to steer clear of economic connections that might give Beijing an upper hand during political upheavals.

Stefano Stefanini, former Italian Ambassador, underscored an official G7 policy termed “de-risking”, spotlighting U.S.'s opposition against Italy’s participation in BRI. Despite U.S warnings labeling it as a “predatory” lending scheme aimed at controlling strategic infrastructure, Italy joined the initiative back in 2019.

Kalifornijos greitojo maisto darbuotojai uždirba 20 USD per valandą: triumfas ar tragedija?

- California’s recent decision to increase the minimum wage for fast food workers to $20 per hour, starting next year, has sparked debate. The state’s Democratic leaders have endorsed this law, recognizing that these workers often serve as the main breadwinners in low-income households. From April 1 onwards, these employees will enjoy the highest base salary in their industry.

Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom signed this law at a Los Angeles event filled with jubilant workers and labor leaders. He dismissed the notion that fast food jobs are merely stepping stones for teenagers entering the workforce as a "romanticized version of a world that doesn’t exist.” He argues that this wage hike will reward their efforts and stabilize an uncertain industry.

This legislation mirrors the growing influence of labor unions in California. These unions have been rallying fast food workers to demand better wages and improved working conditions. In exchange for increased pay, unions are dropping attempts to hold fast food corporations liable for franchise operators' misconducts. The industry has also agreed not to push a worker wages-related referendum onto the 2024 ballot.

Service Employees International Union International President Mary Kay Henry stated that this law is a decade-long effort involving 450 strikes statewide over two years. However, critics question whether such significant wage hikes could potentially hurt small businesses and result in
