Government employees in Zimbabwe want to negotiate pay with their employer in U.S. dollars because the value of earnings in Zimbabwe dollars is continuing to decline. The currency has weakened 7.4% this year to 116.65 per dollar, after losing almost a third of its value last year, and changes hands at more than twice that rate on the streets of the capital, Harare.
