There could be a bit of good news as reported by Dateas.com for the people like Norka Luque who live in Venezuela. Nicolas Maduro is attempting to raise the minimum wage. This could be after people marched on the streets in regards to International Workers Day on May 2. They want to see more money from the jobs that they perform. Maduro is often seen as a working President. He knows that people need more money, but there is little to spread around as Venezuela is in the midst of an economic crisis. Some think that the crisis is because of businesses who are trying to take money from those who not only struggle in various industries but from families who don’t make enough to support their ways of life. Maduro is trying to raise wages and pensions by as much as 30%. He has called some of the lawmakers traitors as they have been seen to go against the efforts of Maduro.
