Haiti - FLASH : Minimum wage, 8 Korean companies in Haiti warn !
8 Korean textile factories established in Haiti : Elansia S.A., Centri Group S.A., Haiti Cheung Won S.A., Hansae Haiti S.A., H&H Textiles S.A., MBI HAITI S.A., Pacific sports Haiti S.A. and The Willbes Haitian S.A., which account for nearly one third of $926 million in exports and thousands of jobs, wrote to the Association of Industries of Haiti (ADIH), to express their deep concerns following the vote of the deputies on March 26 of a bill of law revising the minimum wage which proposes an increase of the minimum wage of the workers of the outsourcing of 78,5% https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-27295-haiti-politic-revised-minimum-wages-according-to-the-bill-voted-by-the-deputies.html .
