The Ministry of Labour has launched a feasibility study into five options for raising the minimum wage next year and this study would be ready for government deliberation in May.

Labour permanent secretary Nakhon Silpa-archa, also a chairman of the minimum wage committee, said the panel had insisted that the Bt300 daily minimum wage be maintained until the end of 2015.

According to the labour panel, more than 6,000 workers from 223 companies based in 12,229 locations received |daily wage at less than Bt300, hence the Department of Labour Protection and Welfare will take legal action against these employers. Violators of the minimum wage regulation face a maximum six-month jail term and/or a fine of Bt100,000.
