Does George Soros, conservatives or panistas finance unemployment?

Different voices have questioned the call for unemployment and have indicated that it is an attempt to destabilize the government of the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO)

López Obrador himself said in his morning press conferences that conservatives have used the movement to attack him, as PAN figures and opposition figures have supported the “one day without us” movement.

In this regard, 4T supporters have pointed out the billionaire George Soros as the hand behind unemployment, because the magnate has financed or at least has been told to invest in similar social movements in other countries.
