I did not say that they don't. That does not mean that the US dollars was not a legal tender during Burnham's days. Sijan Plaza only sold in US dollars back then. And here is another aspect of Sijan Plaza. The stuff they sold were mostly stuff siezed by Customs. Nontheless, things are priced in Guyana with the US currency exchange rate in mind.

Beats the days when public servants used to work for two three hundred dollars per month.
The Govt minimum wage now is US$190.00 or $GY$38,000 per month.

Skilled Workers in private constructions earns about GY$5000.00 per day whils't unskilled workers earns between GY$2,000.00 to $3,000.00 per day.

Girls that are employed in the city's stores earns between GY500.00 to 1,000 per day with free transportation.

You earn more than us here in Venezuela,our minimum wage monthly is about US$162 as the US Dollar costs 5,90 Bs,the one the government says that costs 2,15 is fake as one is only allowed to buy about 3000 I think in a year and verytime it becomes more and more difficult to get it,so the minimum wage of Venezuela is the lowest of America.

Alijuna, never thought that wages in Venezuela, (an oil rich country) was that low, figures why we can see quite a few Venezuelans working in Georgetown, one of the reasons can be that travelling from Guyana to Venezuela via land route is now easily accessable, and we expect in future that there will be more cross border trading.

Yeah buddy,it´s a shame,and Chavez has dared to say we earned about US$800,isn´t it that an evil person who can lie that barefaced?,by the way,which way is that you talk about to get to Guyana from Venezuela?,through Boa Vista via Lethem?

Bus Service to and from Lethem will get you to Guyana and back to Venezuela. It is somewhere between six to eight hours from Georgetown to Lethem. The cost is within the vicinity of GY$8000 to $10,000

Picture showing the Lethem Bridge when it was in the completion stage.

Thank you so much for the info,unfortunately as far as I know we venezuelans need a visa to enter Guyana so probably it is not as easy as getting to Brazil where passports are just stamped and that´s it,hopefully with Venezuela now completely in Mercosur it will only be needed an id to cross borders in all of its members,that´s great.

asj she is referring to minimum wages cross the board. You are referring to minimum wages in the public service. US$5/day or $30/week or $120/month seems to be the answer.

Dont mention that in public because maybe only Haitians would be impressed by that.

BTW reports are that govt advertised a job for an engineer for around US$450/month. Guyanese who are ILLEGALLY in Bdos earn more than that.
