Panama's Government Continues To Evaluate Minimum Wage Increase

Employment & Jobs By Kathyria Caicedo for Telemetro - The government was supposed to announce an increase to the minimum wage today, but they decided to postpone the announcement. Currently, the minimum wage is $325 per month. Hernán García Aparicio, the Secretary of the Labor Ministry, confirmed that because the Minimum Wage Commission failed to reach agreement, the government thought it would be prudent to take a little longer to make a decision. According to Garcia, the main goal is to have an increase to the minimum wage that is in line with the country's situation. The decision should be announced before 31 December. In the Minimum Wage Commission, workers represented by Conato submitted a proposal to have the minimum wage increased to $625 per month, while employers say the increase should be to $360 or $370 per month.
