    He indicated that when more is required of the workers, they suffer pressure, “which perhaps were not so evident before, but the additional effects of the same and the effects of technology that have also affected the psychosocial health not only of the workers but of citizenship”.

    The Minister of Labor stressed that, together with IDOPPRIL, ties have been strengthened where the Government intends not only to strengthen training programs, but also to aggressively territorialize them.
