Argentina: 23 percent hike in per-child payments

Argentina's president has announced a 23 percent increase in government transfer payments to the poor, a move that will cost an additional $520 million.
Cristina Fernandez says the payments to families who keep their children vaccinated and in school has had an impressive impact in Argentine society and must be maintained.
That increase follows this month's 25 percent hike in Argentina's minimum wage, which suggests just how much inflation is eating away at earnings in Argentina.
