Minister of Labor Jorge Villasante of Peru

Peruvian Jorge Villasante took oath as minister of Labor before president Alan GarcĂ­a.
Peruvian miners called off the week-long national strike while talks with government officials over profit-sharing and pensions continue, Deputy Labor Minister Jorge Villasante said yesterday.
Every agency reports that they pay their workers the minimum wage, but we know from talking to porters that many receive only $8 or $9," Villasante said in an interview.
