DHAKA – The Bangladesh office of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has said it is encouraged by the government’s decision to revisit the minimum wages for ready-made garment workers through an agreement made by a special tripartite committee.

Negotiations between worker representatives and the state were ongoing throughout last year in order to agree a first mandatory minimum wage increase since the Rana Plaza collapse of 2013. Between that year and 2018 the lowest wage a garment worker could legally receive was 5,300 taka per month.
