The Minister for Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment Jone Usamate said: “The NMW rate of $2 will cover all employers in the informal sector, including employers in the formal sector not covered under the 10 current Wages Regulations Orders (WROs).
“It will benefit a total of at least 72,000 workers,” Mr Usamate said.
“The overarching objective of this major wage policy is to alleviate poverty among the most marginalised workers in the informal and formal sectors. It is to build a better Fiji for these workers, who have been disadvantaged and disregarded for a long period of time.”
