77 MPs voted Tuesday to amend the 2009 minimum wage law.
A bill that provides for an increase in the minimum wage in the sector of outsourcing from 420g per day to 750.
In response businessman Reginald Boulos welcomes the vote of MPs in favor of an increase of the minimum wage. However, he is surprised at the speed with which this vote has taken place and the lack of prior debate.
Dr. Boulos deplores the lack of prior debate with the private sector and deplores the haste of the parliamentarians, which seems largely inspired by the electoral context.
