Labour ministry mulls mechanisms for setting minimum wage

VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/ANN) – The Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare is working with the Lao Federation of Trade Unions and representatives of the labour sector to draw up recommendations for establishing the minimum wage.

The setting and raising of the minimum wage aims to boost incomes and improve the welfare of workers at the low end of the ladder, while also reducing inequality and promoting social inclusiveness.

During a tripartite workshop on the topic last week, participants discussed a possible increase in the minimum wage.
