The National Wage Committee announced on Friday (December 6) that it will raise the minimum wage by Bt6 for nine provinces and Bt5 for the rest of Thailand, Suthi Sukosol, Permanent Secretary of Labour, said.

 

Workers in Chon Buri, Phuket, Bangkok, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Samut Prakan, Samut Sakhon and Prachin Buri will receive the additional Bt6 a day.

 

This will give Phuket and Chonburi the highest minimum wages of Bt336 a day while those with the lowest minimum wages, Bt313/day, are Narathiwat and Pattani.

 

The Permanent Secretary believes that the adjustment is appropriate for the economic situation. It’s expected to give some balance while also benefiting Thailand’s economy.

 

The Committee will present the resolution to the Cabinet as soon as possible so that the measure can take effect by January 1, 2020.

Increase? In CM many have to accept a decrease to even 7k baht, as some owners cant afford more.
