There is a quartean crisis in the middle of quarantine. The biggest idol falls, will your fans give you a dismissal telegram?
The Mona Jiménez is the character that gives us the most joy and anecdotes. He is the Cordoban icon par excellence, our representative and our mentor. However, this does not leave him free from taking controversial decisions, which call him into question . Many times he went along with his followers, taking macho positions . On this occasion, it is the dismissal of his employees that makes him missing.
In the midst of quarantine and global crisis, the famous singer decides to fire his band. Which — it is worth clarifying — is the one that accompanied him for more than twenty years in the shows. In every stage he climbed and, above all, every Friday of Sergeant Cabral. In addition, it is a team of 45 people . Among musicians, leads, sound players, photographers and technicians. People, with their respective families, who worked in white and today, in the midst of crisis, are unemployed. Some of them have been working with the Mona for over 53 years . Others are newer. According to some of the band's voices, the layoffs were “by common accord.”
So say some of the stanzas of Carlos “La Mona” Jiménez's “Telegrama de dismispido” quarteazo :
A dismissal telegram
that told me not to go to work
That left me without present or future
To my family without pride and dignity
A dismissal telegram
and like a child I started crying...
As if it were a waste, an old rag
like that would throw me out on the street without hesitation.
Who cares about my suffering
if in statistics I'm just one more.
How do I explain to my family
maybe tomorrow may be missing bread
It's twenty years, almost a life
that I gave to that factory
but it seems that nothing counts
so says this paper
In the composition of this letter, the Mona shows social awareness. It shows, as in other occasions, to know what it means to be out of work and to be head of the family. However, in this case, he didn't seem to care. And he acted by firing his employees the same way.
This fact caused controversy. The media reported the situation and even Carlos Jimenez's lawyer came out to speak. Whatever happens, the quartetea community expressed its repudiation of the singer's actions through social networks. But he also received messages of support from his followers in the midst of controversy. There is talk of a quartetea crisis because, in the face of this situation, rumors of withdrawal of the singer increased. And, in addition, the quarteter audience was divided between those who defend it and those who don't bank it. These layoffs indicate the disintegration of the band most followed by the people of Cordoba. We don't know what will happen to the Mona dances. What we do know is that his employees were out of work.
