Trade unions have been demanding for a minimum wage of Rs 15,000 per month
The government will enhance minimum wages and make it mandatory across the country to boost demand of goods and services for pushing economic growth and creating jobs, Labour Secretary Shankar Aggarwal today said.
“We will create a law to give certain minimum wages across the country in all trades and not only in scheduled employments (as per existing law),” Aggarwal said while addressing at a conference organised by CII here.
Aggarwal is of the view that the economic growth can be boosted by creating jobs and for that there is need of creating demand of goods and services for increasing manufacturing and other economic activities.
