First Lost Jobs Reported

The first jobs lost due to the minimum wage increase have been reported in Choluteca’s mayors office. Choluteca’s mayor has officially declared that 147 people will be fired when the minimum wage increase becomes official.

The mayors office will not have the capacity to pay the the higher wage salaries with its limited budget. If they were to pay all those employees, then investment in areas such as health and infrastructure would have to drop almost to zero.

  1. It looks good on the paper, the increase of minimum wages and the potenital of consume out of it, but often the increase is more then the potential budget for paying wages, so they loose jobs.
