Haiti - Politics : Trade unions call for a 228% increase in the minimum wage
Thursday, two trade union organizations in the textile subcontracting sector "Batay Ouvriye" and "Platfòm sendikal izin tekstil" have launched an appeal to the Government to adjust the minimum wage in this sector upwards to take account of the increase in the cost of living.

The trade unions demand that the minimum wage be set at 800 Gourdes per 8-hour workday instead of the 350 Gourdes fixed in the textile subcontracting sector, according to the presidential decree of Monday 23 May 2016 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-17541-haiti-flash-full-details-on-the-new-minimum-wage.html . Unions threaten government to take the streets next May, if they do not get satisfaction of their claim.

These unions, that plead for a grant of food, means of transport and housing for the workers, oppose the collection by the General Tax Directorate (DGI) of 13% taxes on the wages of workers in the private and public https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-20270-haiti-codevi-workers-refuse-to-pay-a-tax-to-dgi.html
