Why Venezuelans are protesting

Venezuela’s president hiked the nation’s minimum wage another 60% on Sunday in response to the country’s ongoing economic crisis.

President Nicolas Maduro announced the change on his weekly television show. It’s the latest in a series of hefty increases to the minimum wage that have been issued as the country’s currency plunges in value.
