Will the Chilean miners still be paid their wages?

The union is making its demands right now (Sp.) and the final outcome is not clear.  The union is demanding that the government accept responsibility for paying the miners, as apparently they no longer consider the company a reliable creditor.  They then want the government to try to recover the funds from the company.  So far the government is strongly resisting this suggestion.  Another account of the dispute is here.

Update: So far it seems that corporate payment of wages will continue through August but after that is uncertain.
