State workers on the march again

Employees of the state telecom company, the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad, are marching today to the legislature because they have two complaints.

They are unhappy with regulators who are approving the private generation of electricity and they are unhappy with what they see as attacks on their salaries.

The company known as ICE ha been among those state organization that have been subjected to news reports by newspapers and television relating to salaries that are significantly higher than the same jobs in the private sector.

The government has not yet decided what to do about that fact, although there is public and legislative pressure to take some action.

The ICE workers want to apply some of their own pressure.

Expat motorists  probably should seek to avoid the San José downtown all morning and into the early hours of the afternoon.
