3.4 Haiti Manual Labor

Labour is regulated by the Haitian Labor Code. A minimum wage is not always respected as controls are non-existent. UN agencies and NGOs often pay warehouse workers at a per MT rate, instead of a daily rate. The rate varies among organisations and changes subject to inflation, security and other factors. The information in the table below reflects the rate of July 2022 as a reference only.
