Construction projects throughout Panama have remained idle since April 23, when workers walked off the job in an effort to win a 35 percent salary increase. The strike threatens to further delay the canals expansion, designed to accommodate larger ships and help reduce transport costs for commodities such as liquefied natural gas.
