An Important Minimum Wage Increase Helps Venezuelan Families

A Linked In article revealed the perseverance of the Venezuelan working class has incited positive change in the country’s government. Amidst several economic periods of increasing inflation, on May 1st, 2016, the people of Venezuela convinced their government to increase the national minimum wage.
This increase amounts to a 30 percent boost in minimum pay by employers in an economic climate that has been racked with recent stifling inflation rates. This increase gives working-class families in Venezuela the power to buy more, which will theoretically boost the country’s businesses and international trade position.

This new minimum wage increase will bring the average Venezuelan worker’s wage to about 9,649 bolivars per month. It completes a 52 percent increase over last year’s wages, but gives families the ability to combat hyperinflation that has caused an 80 percent loss in the value of the country’s currency.

Expert Jose Manuel thinks that no matter the outcome of the current economic conditions in Venezuela, minimum wage increases are an indicator that the country’s ruling powers are dedicated to the quality of life of every citizen. As international support contributes to the future of Venezuela’s economy, social concessions like minimum wage increases help every Venezuelan in the short term. A currency war is inevitable, but high minimum wages allow all Venezuelans to actively contribute to their country’s economic reconstruction.

Assembly Pushess Referendum on Maduro

As the economic crisis worsens in Venezuela, opposition parties are trying to push for a referendum to end the presidency of Nicolas Maduro early. He was elected to a six-year term as president in 2013. According to a story in Reuters, Venezuelans may have a referendum on a president at the halfway point of the term, and decide in a general election whether to oust him or her from office early.
The election council in Venezuela is said by David Osio that it is in charge of determining when referendums may be held, and not the legislature. The Legislative branch, dominated by the opposition party, is pushing for the referendum and wants to run it. The opposition won the majority in the legislature last year.

The Nation’s supreme court could also strike down the referendum. in the past it has sided with Maduro. The president’s party has called the move for a referendum a “parliamentary coup.” The assembly which David is a part of, is also discussing shortening the term of the president from six years to four, in another attempt to end his term early. There is debate over whether they could make the change retroactive.

In February a poll by Datanalisis said 66 percent of people in Venezuela favor ending Maduro’s presidency early.

The country is having severe inflation, mass shortages of basic items, and the socialist government seems on the verge of imploding. Shrinking oil prices, as well as a long term drought, are two of the major reasons for the crisis.

Famine to Fortuity

March 31, 2007 marks the day a young girl and her mother began a journey very few people have the courage let their thoughts wander toward. Yeonmi Park defected from North Korea at the pivotal age of thirteen and her story proves that it takes a special kind of person to not only start writing such a harrowing tale, but to survive it and speak up about it afterward.

Yeonmi crossed the frozen Yalu River with her mother in the shroud of the night to flee their harsh life under the regime. Arriving in China with only vague ideas of where her life was headed now, she thought she’d escaped the worst of what humanity had to offer. There was only partial truth in that because the next few years proved to be challenging in new ways, for the very man that helped them escape North Korea was the man that enslaved them.

It seemed that living a life in the underground left her as an easy target for abuse in addition to the starvation she faced. Yeonmi and her mother had both been trafficked, the girl herself sold for $260 to a man that kept her as a sex slave. The two were retained in the grime of the shadows until Yeonmi’s father, who had once been sentenced to seventeen years in a labor camp for smuggling metal in order to feed his starving family, crossed the Chinese border to join them. Unfortunately, he died of untreated colon cancer mere months later and didn’t get to see the end of their trek across the unforgiving Gobi Desert.

It was around this point that Yeonmi Park admitted to the Daily Mail UK, she began carrying a knife and resigned herself to suicide if either of them were ever to get caught in the clutches of more unsavory people, or, maybe even worse yet, if they faced the threat of repatriation. On foot with this mentality, they traveled all the way to the Mongolian border before finally getting to South Korea by way of plane.

Despite the small pool of nay-sayers, this Amazon best selling author holds steadfast to the truth of her own tale and is among the most prominent voices of the North Korean defectors speaking against the cruel regime today.
