Ministry of Health Workers Want Their Raise, As Promised

Protests & DemonstrationsBanging pots and with banners in hand, a group of administrative workers of the Ministry of Health (MoH) yesterday launched a series of protests to demand the government of Ricardo Martinelli comply with their commitment to deliver the promised salary adjustment made two years ago. The health workers are upset because through a circular issued by the Secretary General of the MoH, Felix Bonilla, and signed by the Minister of Economy and Finance, Frank De Lima, they are told that the salary range will be lower than what was established in the 2012 Budget. Meanwhile, Jorge Morales, a leader of the workers, said this decision is not justified, so they expect an answer from the authorities by Wednesday or otherwise they will go on a nationwide strike. With these administrative and fiscal measures $294.8 million dollars was cut from the investment budget, of which $60 million relates to new projects with zero execution and $110.5 million in operating budget.
