Lawmakers will debate about the continuity of that provision, adopted to stimulate the economy, maintain decent employment, promote labor sources and prevent the growth of underemployment rates, although in practice, the executive branch of former President Juan Orlando Hernandez achieved very little.

The Opinion Commission will begin the socialization process of the mentioned law on Wednesday, February 16, as of 09:30 hours, local time, with the representatives of the different Honduran workers’ organizations.

Juan Barahona, lawmaker of the Liberty and Refundation Party (LIBRE), presented the initiative to Parliament, considering the legislation as abusive and responsible for the violation of the workers, the absence of benefits beyond wage and a pay lower, many times, than the established minimum.

Presidential appointee Doris Gutierrez alluded to the urgency of parameters aimed at improving hourly employment because many companies abuse and enslave their subordinates and mentioned that the law needs to be revised regarding the number of people and conditions.
