YANGON - Gap Inc, Marks & Spencer and adidas have all publicly expressed their support of the Myanmar government's recent proposal for a minimum wage which will have implications for workers in the country's fast growing textile industry. Meanwhile, Myanmar's Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Welfare has said factories threatening closure over the proposed minimum wage could face legal action if they fail to obey official procedures. Myanmar Garment Manufacturers Association recently stated that 30 Chinese and 60 South Korean-operated factories would shut down operations if the minimum wage of 3,600 kyatts (US$3.2) per day was approved.
