Honduran labor movement seeks 22 percent increase in current minimum wage
Thursday, January 13, 2011
The labor movement in Honduras is seeking a 22 percent increase in the minimum wage, said one of the leading trade union organizations.
The representative said that all the unions have agreed to fight for the increase. “This year we don’t intend to raise false expectations for the future of the nation’s workers,” he said. “This is a realistic demand.” The 22 percent only compensates for the increases in prices of staple consumer items, the union leader added.
