When I first arrived here 2 years ago the value for the US dollar was 17.50 cordobas. It is now nearly 18.50 but there are no jobs and the ones that do exist don't pay enough to afford the cost of living. Which is 3,081 cordobas/US$170.00 ( currently ).
The current minimum wage ranges between 869.40 and 2,018.40 cordobas.
The value of the US dollar will have to skyrocket up to 63.79 cordobas in order for the minimium wage to remain as it is and the lowest paid worker to be able to afford the cost of living.
We'll still need jobs and decent wages.
