Haiti: Laid-off Teleco Haiti workers compensated

Categories: Caribbean, Haiti, Economics & Business, Politics, Technology

Collectif-Haiti-de-Provence writes about Haitian president Rene Preval's decision to compensate workers [1] (Fr) who were illegally laid off from the state-owned telecom, Teleco Haiti. The government plans on privatizing Teleco, a move that will undoubtedly bring violent demonstrations from those who stand to lose out, Collectif writes, but that those who will benefit should also demonstrate.
