The Government summoned the Wage Board for this Friday
City of Buenos Aires, August 24, 2011
The Labor Minister Carlos Tomada, called the Wage Board for Friday of this week, at 14. There, employers, union representatives and government officials will discuss and fix a new wage floor.
The Council of the Minimum and Mobile Wage will have an uphill task in what negotiation is this week, as the CGT and the CTA come with a claim for 2,600 pesos (617 dollars).
The required increase with respect to the current minimum ($ 1,840), is 40%, which is enough to overcome inflation and reach a real increase in the income of workers.
