KARACHI - Garment workers in Pakistan's textiles hub of Sindh province have won what campaigners declared to be a "historic" 40 per cent hike in the minimum wage.

The Sindh Minimum Wage Board's decision to increase unskilled workers minimum pay - from 17,500 to 25,000 PKR (US$85-120) per month - will take effect retroactively from 1st June.

The wage increase was first announced in July 2021 by the Sindh provincial government, however it was stalled due to objections from employers who lodged an appeal with the Supreme Court, claiming they could not afford to pay.
