    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)
