Minimum Wage in Panama Raised To As High As $416 Per Month
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, December 24 2009 @ 05:43 PM UTC

While the exPats have no idea how a Panamanian family can survive earning what most of us spend at the grocery store, there is more to the story than just the base pay.

The local labor laws give the employees 30 days paid vacation, two weeks paid sick leave, a dozen official holidays and then there's Carnival and Semana Santa - So the average worker puts in about 9.5 months work for 13 months pay.

And then there's the issue idfalco raised about how hard they work when they are actually on the job.
