"Unless the economic benefits of an improving economy are felt more widely, this recovery may well prove neither economically nor socially sustainable." Plunging into a fight that has divided the major US political parties, Igan rejected arguments that increasing the minimum wage, now $7.25 an hour, would cause companies to hire significantly fewer workers.

"This resulted in a stand-off which is still the prevailing situation at this time, as UN officials try to peacefully resolve the situation," said the statement from Manila.
