Honduran businessmen reject minimum wage increase proposal

The Honduran Private Sector Council is not ready to accept the proposal for an immediate minimum wage increase for workers of $291 (5500 Lempiras).

Monday, November 3, 2008

The tripartite commission including worker's union leaders, businessmen and the Secretary of Labor will begin, in the next few days, the process of negotiating the new adjustment for minimum wage that will come into effect starting January 1, 2009.
The position of the General Workers Union (CGT) will demand that the increase granted by the Government be automatically transferred public sector workers, without delay as in years gone by. This is already rejected by the business class in the country.
