El Salvador takes $8.5 million hit on holidays

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

El Salvador's private sector has asked the country's legislators to withdraw a law that declares June 17, Father's day, a paid national holiday.

The private sector said productivity drops during national holidays.

Data from the country's private sector association shows that companies lose some $8.5 million every national holiday.
