    Costa Rican workers receive 3.78% salary increaseThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Costa Rican government declared a 3.78% wage increase for the first half of 2014, a percentage that is a compromise between workers and employers request.

    As part of the negotiations within the National Wages Council, representatives of workers last week had requested an increase of 3.96%, while employers proposed 3.60%.

    The increase will come into effect on January 1, 2014.

    The president of the Costa Rican Union of Chambers and Associations of Private Enterprise (UCCAEP), Jaime Molina, said in a statement that the proposal of the employers was “responsible” and sought to avoid an impact on unemployment in the country, which is about 10%.

    In Costa Rica, the government sets wage increases for every year for both the private sector and the public, but at separate times. (EFE)
