The Labour Department will soon be setting up a committee to review wages and salaries in some sectors, including construction, agriculture, hotel, and security.
Labour Commissioner Hesketh Williams told Caribarena, “The minimum wage is usually reviewed every two years. We need to get the committee in place for them to look at what’s happening in the economy and for them to determine whether it should increase."
The Minimum Wage Advisory Committee investigates the working conditions in several areas, assesses the unemployment levels and reviews the cost of living and other economic conditions, with the view to making recommendations on wages and salaries in each sector.
The current minimum wage is 7.50 E.C an hour.
