Myanmar announces minimum wage

Written by John Mowbray

YANGON - Myanmar has introduced its first ever minimum wage of 3,600 kyatts (US$3.2) per day following twelve months of negotiations between the government, employers and unions. The figure is based on an eight-hour working day, with national coverage, and indications are that workers in Economic Processing Zones will be paid more than the new minimum. Minimum wages in other key garment manufacturing destinations include Bangladesh (US$68), Cambodia (US$ 128 per month), India (US $91 per month) and Indonesia (US $217 per month).
