U Thein Swe, the Union Minister for the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, attended a workshop for setting the minimum wage at the Chatrium Hotel in Yangon yesterday.
The minister discussed the setting of a new minimum wage at the forum. U Zarni Thwe, General Secretary of Farmers, Agriculture and Foodstuff, said it was high time to set a minimum wage for workers because “we already have proposed to set the rate of minimum wages between the employers and the employees.”
The President’s Office has already formed the National Minimum Wage Committee and made a tri-partite dialogue to resolve the issues.
The committee has already arranged to hold meetings through employers, employees and representatives.
Attendees at the forum were members of Amyotha Committee, Htuttaw Representatives, labour organisation representatives, experts, employer groups, the International Labour Organisation and the Central Statistical Organisation.
