Wage costs weigh on Honduras free-zone garment and textile industry plants

Thursday, April 7, 2011

The Honduran free-zone industry, which is mainly made up of textile and apparel manufacturers, is facing higher salaries for its workers after the government raised the sector's minimum wage by 10 percent.

Details of the annual rise in the country's minimum wage were released last week, and will be backdated to 1 January.

The minimum hourly wage now equates to $7.75 for an eight-hour day.
