Haiti - Politics : Minimum wage, call for calm and serenity
Tuesday in a press conference, the day after a demonstration of workers of subcontracting https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21354-haiti-flash-textile-workers-and-moise-jean-charles-take-the-street.html Rudy Heriveaux, the Director General of the Ministry of Social Affairs and President f the Superior Council of Wages (CSS) followed up on the progress of the CSS's work on the "burning record" of the minimum wage.

Recalling that the CSS was the only state entity to have the prerogative to foster consensus among the different protagonists, he welcomed the work that the members of the Council are carrying out. He promised that the Council's report (late), with minimum wage proposals for the different sectors of activity, will be submitted to the Executive in early July. He assured that there will be a balanced arbitration by the Executive and the Prime Minister, for a satisfactory decision by all parties, stressing that macroeconomic index experts, entrepreneurs and economists have been and are still being consulted, to document the arguments of these proposals.

In the meantime, he called for calm, serenity and dialogue "to those who in the shadows manipulate the most radical fringe of the trade union sector for high-risk events that can seriously affect employment in Haiti "Recalling a letter from companies from the textile sectors to the Prime Minister, which mention their major losses and which do not exclude to leave Haiti https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21344-haiti-flash-several-textile-companies-do-not-exclude-leaving-haiti-if.html . Affirming "these professionals of destabilization" do not have "the monopoly of solidarity and empathy", a reference to a replica of Valéry Giscard d'Estaing to François Mitterand in May 1974, who had said during a Debate TV, "you do not have the monopoly of the heart."

To conclude, he said that these manipulative individuals "would do better to encourage dialogue for a consensual solution, between the protagonists of the issue of minimum wage, instead of throwing oil on the fire".
