Puerto Rico Law to Increase Benefits for Private Sector Workers | app


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The governor of Puerto Rico on Monday signed legislation that will give more rights to private sector workers in the U.S. territory as he challenged a federal board of control that said the move would be considered a violation of federal law.

“This new law makes entering the labor market more attractive and safer at a time when the vast majority of companies are looking for employees and when we need more workers to advance the reconstruction of Puerto Rico,” said said Governor Pedro Pierluisi, referring to the island’s struggle to recover from Hurricane Maria and recent earthquakes.
