Myanmar minister promises minimum wages by June-end

Jun '15

Ko Kyaw Lwin Oo, a garment worker from E-Land Myanmar who attended the workshop, said more than K4000 was needed as a “living wage” because of rising commodity prices.

U Maung Maung, chair of the Federation of Trade Unions-Myanmar, said the minimum wage should be based on eight hours of work a day, without including overtime, and needed to be sufficient to support a family.

Factory owners had earlier been reluctant to pay anything more than 1500 kyat in minimum wages. (SH)
