SANTO DOMINGO. – The Dominican doctors grouped in the CMD will usher in president Leonel Fernandez’s new term in office with a thrust for a wage increase, said its president Waldo Ariel Suero on Thursday.
He announced a 24-hour walkout in the Public Health and the Dominican of Social Security Institute hospitals and a march to Congress together with several popular organizations for August 16, day of Fernandez’s inaugural.
Although the doctors demand a RD$58,000 per month minimum wage, Fernandez is willing to increase it only 15 percent, the same as for all government workers.
