Salvadoran textile plants say they lose jobs to Honduras because of long shifts

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Textile firms in El Salvador say they are losing orders to Honduras because the Honduran plants are working 12-hour shifts.
Long shifts have not been allowed in by the government in El Salvador, while Honduras claims to have hired some 10,000 textile workers to meet US demand.
The government of the Salvadoran textile industry chamber, Edwin Zamora, urged the government to permit 12-hour shifts.
