Workers Ask for $650 Minimum Wage

Employment & JobsTVN Noticias - The labor sector is seeking a minimum wage of $650, a general wage increase and a freeze on prices of basic food, said Rafael Chavarria. The Minimum Wage Commission, which includes representatives of workers, employers and the government, has finished doing the technical study and Chavarria said he would wait until the tripartite commission meeting that will be held in David tomorrow to announce the possibility of reaching an agreement. Chavarria also said the labor sector disagrees with the government over the current level of unemployment. On this point, Chavarria says unemployment stands between 11% and 12% and not less than 10%, which is why he considers that the number cited by the government is not consistent with reality.
