    This was defined by the National Wages Council, for the more than 1,270,000 workers in the private sector across the country earning under the minimum wage law.

    According Olman Segura, Secretary of Labor, this increase was achieved after a signed agreement from sectors of government, employers and workers, since October 2011, replacing the previous one that was in force since 1998 and only envisaged increases for cost of living, without there being any recognition to workers in respect of production growth.
