Marking the International Workers’ Day, the trade unions also expressed concern about the high unemployment rate, mainly among young people.
They also decried the low coverage rate in the national minimum wage which does not respond to staple food need.
The Unions said that the above mentioned issues were among the factors of instability.
On the other hand, the Trade Unions defended an 80 percent minimum salary, calling for the need to create more jobs to absorb unemployed, mainly youths.
Several marches were held across the country to mark the International Workers’ Day (May 1).
