LIUNA and Gov. Rossello agree to raise the island’s minimum wage from $8.25 per hour to $15.00 per hour

“With the devastation that Hurricane Maria left behind, this increase in wages for public construction workers in Puerto Rico is a big victory for the people who rebuilding the island,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “While Puerto Rico continues to face struggles, in the aftermath of such a natural disaster, this will pump more money into the economy, help solidify the middle class with good union jobs and will help stabilize the Island as we rebuild.  I salute LIUNA and thank Gov. Ricardo Rossello for this agreement and this important step in revitalizing the economy of the island.”
