KARACHI - Factory owners are threatening to relocate away from Pakistan's textile and garment manufacturing hub of Sindh province over an increase of more than 40 per cent in the minimum wage.

The Sindh provincial government announced proposals to increase the minimum wage for unskilled workers from 17,500 rupees (US$100) to 25,000 rupees (US$143) three months ago.

The Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) and the Sindh Industrial Trading Estate (SITE) Association challenged the move at Sindh High Court which last week referred the increase back to the Sindh Minimum Wages Board (SMWB).
