Tk 12,500 finalised as minimum RMG wage

The minimum wage board on Sunday (Nov 26) finalised Tk 12,500 as the minimum monthly salary for garment workers. The board also reduced the number of grades of the wage structure to four from the existing five grades. Earlier on Nov 7, the wage board reduced the number of salary grades from seven to five.

Wage Board Chairman Liaquat Ali Mollah announced the final wage structure at a press conference held at the Ministry of Labour at Bangladesh Secretariat in the capital, local media reported.

Although five grades were proposed in the draft of the wage structure, but after consultation with the board members, it has been reduced to four.
