#3997: Factory wages (fwd)


From: Tom F. Driver <tfd3@columbia.edu>

I am in no way implying that i disagree with what you are saying about unfair 
labor practises - but be careful with your exchange rate - 

<<In this example, the work week is 112 hours.  The pay of 750 gourdes for 
amount of labor comes to 6.74 gourdes per hour, or 1.34 Haitian dollars
per hour.  In early May this year the exchange rate was about 20 Haitian 
dollars to one US dollar.  That means the workers in the example are getting 
6.7 cents per hour.>>

20 haitian dollars ( i.e. 100 gourdes) to one US dollar is not correct.
