The Permanent Secretary said since the minimum wage has been enforced at the beginning of this month in 7 provinces, some employers have decided to award their workers who have been working for more than 2-3 years with a higher pay.
Mr. Somkiat said there should be a new salary structure for workers whose employment is longer than 2-3 years to force employers to give them a raise based on their experiences. He also explained that the salary base should vary from one industry to another, given the type of business and the level of expertise.
He , however, added that the issue will be further discussed and deliberated before being proposed to the Central Minimum Wage Committee for consideration.
