Plumbers from Allens are charging a $9 per hour hourly rate to do their jobs.
Allens, a San Diego-based plumbing company, announced a wage hike Wednesday that will take effect April 1.
Workers at Allens in San Pedro Sula and San Diego will receive a $1.25 hourly wage increase, an increase of $0.50.
The company says it will pay for the wage increase by cutting jobs.
The wage hike is part of an overall $1 billion wage hike that Allens announced in March.
The San Diego company says the new wage hike will take place starting April 1 and it will cover all hourly workers at the company.
