Minimum wage could be increased by more than Bt15 a day

Minimum wage could be increased by more than Bt15 a day

THURSDAY, January 04, 2018

The Labour Ministry’s permanent secretary, Jarin Chakkaphark, said on Thursday that the Tripartite Wage Committee would pass a resolution on an increase to the minimum wage by January 15.

“It’s possible that the increase may be well over Bt15 because the wage has been fixed at Bt300 a day since 2014,” he said. 
Labour Minister Pol General Adul Saengsingkaew said the wage hike was in response to Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha’s wish to raise the wage as a New Year gift for workers.
