Govt launches consultation on minimum wage

2017-11-13 08:00     Comment:0

The government is launching a 45-day public consultation today on the proposed implementation of a statutory minimum wage for all workers. The bureau proposes that domestic helpers and disabled employees will be excluded from the implementation of the minimum wage.

A press conference about the public consultation was held yesterday at the Labour Affairs Bureau (DSAL) in Areia Preta district. The public consultation will end on December 27. Four public sessions will be held during the consultation period.

Addressing yesterday’s press conference, DSAL Director Wong Chi Hong said his bureau was refraining from proposing the amount of the minimum wage in the public consultation, as the consultation will focus on the establishment of the system of a city-wide statutory minimum wage – i.e. how such a system should work.
