“A Day Without Business” is Suspended in Honduras
The Honduran Council of Private Enterprise suspended the protest against the minimum wage increase pending a Supreme Court resolution.
Monday, February 9, 2009
The COHEP decided to wait for a Supreme Court resolution in response to its appeal for an intervention to protect hundreds of businesses. Therefore, “A Day Without Business” will not be held on February 12th, as was expected, and instead it will be postponed until after the court´s decision.
Business organizations have set February 12 as the day when they will close their businesses to protest the increase in minimum wages.
Business owners have already filed 72 legal suits against the executive decree that increased the minimum wage.
The Private Sector Council of Honduras is recommending to its members that they challenge the executive decree increasing the minimum wage in the Supreme Court.
The Honduran Private Sector Council is not ready to accept the proposal for an immediate minimum wage increase for workers of $291 (5500 Lempiras).
