PORT-AU-PRINCE — Several hundred factory workers marched in the streets of Delmas on May 8 and 9 to demand better working conditions, an increase in the minimum wage and more social benefits. They also vowed to keep protesting for a month if the Haitian government does not act quickly.

"The minimum wage should be set at 2,500 gourdes or $18 USD," a protesting worker told the local press. "The Haitian state must turn its gaze to the thousands of employees in the subcontracting sector who receive but a pittance."
