Argentina’s president is now requiring 1% of public sector jobs be set aside for transgender people. In a decree signed by President Alberto Fernández signed a decree on Friday, September 4 that creates a job quota for transgender people in order to better protect against unemployment, according to Página 12. “Every transvestite, transsexual, and transgender person has a right to decent and productive work,” the decree says, “in equitable and satisfactory working conditions and with protections against unemployment, without discrimination based on gender identity or expression.” Transgender people do not have to have corrected the gender marker on their ID to qualify for one of the jobs and allows for jobs to be reserved for transgender people if they are still completing their education.
