Haiti: US opposed minimum wage rise, cables show


Sunday, June 12, 2011

By


The United States embassy in Haiti worked closely with factory owners contracted by Levi's,
Hanes, and Fruit of the Loom to aggressively block a paltry minimum wage rise for Haitian
assembly zone workers.

The moves to block a wage rise for the lowest paid in the western hemisphere were revealed
by secret US State Department cables obtained by Haiti Liberte andThe Nation magazine.
The factory owners refused to pay $0.62 an hour, or $5 per eight-hour day, as mandated by
a measure unanimously passed by Haiti’s parliament in June 2009.

The cables, provided by WikiLeaks, show that behind the scenes, factory owners were
vigorously backed by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US
embassy.

Before the rise, the minimum daily wage was $1.75 a day. The factory owners told
parliament they were willing to give workers a mere nine cent per hour pay rise — to $0.31
an hour — to make T-shirts, bras and underwear for US clothing giants such as Dockers and
Nautica.

The West supports many puppet governments and uses freedom/democracy as a tool for control. By preventing economic development and a stable government, they are ruining all chances for Haitians (and others) from independence and prosperity.

& with this it makes it easier to see that the earthquake was purposely caused because more oil was found in haiti than the u.s. found in venezuela (which was the original target), so they needed an excuse to deploy 20,000 troops. Of course they were deployed under the guise of 're-building', but in truth they are there to steal the oil.

if you really look at the Haiti disaster.. the entire event was too polished.. the press coverage.. the magazine pictorials.. the entire relief effort had a contrived feeling to it.. it all felf orchestrated.. The US has never cared about Haiti.. but suddenly their was this supposed outpouring of emotion.. CNN on the ground beating the "we are so humane" drum.. all the people of haiti knew was that the earth quaked.. they have no way of knowing why and how.. was it a man-made quake or a natural quake? thats a really good question.. either way, the deployment of troops was suspicious..

Now that this information has seen the light of day I wonder how this will effect the plans of those in power. Misdirection seems to be their tool of choice but the access to information we have now makes that very difficult.

Thanks brotha skuder for passing that on.
