What did Comex Peru say about the increase in the minimum wage?
Regarding the increase in the minimum wage in Peru, the president of Comex Peru, Jessica Luna, told RPP that she is against increasing the amount that currently stands at S/1,025. “Do you think that an SME that is leaving UCI, a formal SME, in Gamarra, which pays its workers a minimum wage with all its rights, can now face a higher minimum wage?
