Spicoli’s Paradise: Ex-Bus Driver Floors the Pedal to Economic Crash

President Nicolas Maduro raised Venezuela’s minimum wage Friday to help workers being battered by the world’s highest inflation.

Speaking at a May Day rally, the socialist leader said he is boosting the minimum wage and pensions for retirees by 30 percent, with two-thirds of the increase coming this month and the rest on July 1. He also said he would raise salaries for government employees and military personnel.
