El Salvador prelate: minimum wage increase is insufficient
June 10, 2016
El Salvador’s National Minimum Wage Council has proposed to raise the minimum wage by 5% each of the next three years—a proposal that the nation’s leading prelate has rejected as insufficient.
“I would say it is unfair and sinful not to pay proper wages to workers,” said Archbishop José Luis Escobar Alas of San Salvador, according to the Fides news agency.
