RMG workers to get Tk 8,000 minimum salary from Dec

BSS, Dhaka

The minimum wage for the apparel workers across the country announced by the government will be effective from this month, said an official release in Dhaka yesterday. “The government has raised the minimum monthly wage for 4.4 million garment workers by around 51 percent to Tk 8,000 from the existing Tk 5,300 with effect from December,” said state minister for labour M Mujibul Haq Chunnu while chairing the 38th meeting of the crisis management core committee at the ministry conference room here.

The seven stages of the wage structure has been increased in line with the wage structure fixed in 2013, he said. He said that of the Tk 8,000, Tk 4,100 is basic wage, Tk 2,050 house rent, Tk 600 medical allowance, Tk 350 conveyance allowance and Tk 900 food expenditure.

Side by side, the state minister warned that the government will not tolerate any anarchy in the apparel industries ahead of the upcoming national polls.
