Haiti - FLASH : New Minimum Wages proposed by the Superior Council of Wages
In its report submitted to the Executive this week, the Superior Council of Wages (CSS) proposes for workers in the textile sector, a minimum wage for an 8-hour day of 625 Gourdes, an increase of 25% compared to the salary in force since 2019 (500 gourdes).

The unions in this sector who met Prime Minister Ariel Henry on Friday at his official residence, reacted strongly to this proposal far from their claims of 1,500 Gourdes claimed, accusing the employers of "provocation" and giving a 48-hour ultimatum to the Government to revise upwards the CSS proposal, threatening the resumption of demonstrations from Monday, February 21 if they do not obtain satisfaction.
