The voice of the Parliament is the voice of the people.
President Preval should agree to the minimum wage and pass the legislation into law.
From $2.00/day to$5.00 for 10 hours work is not too much to ask and long time overdue.
We at the Haitian Americans Today Organization stands firm with the student mobilization. We are asking for the release of the students who are arrested and detained, and to be compensated.
