Minimum wages under review
Minister of Labour Colin Jordan said this was one way Barbados was supporting decent work.
He was addressing an International Labour Organisation (ILO)/Public Services International joint presentation of findings of a gender-neutral evaluation project at Accra Beach Hotel, Rockley, Christ Church, on Friday.
“[The] ministry is actively exploring an increase in minimum wages that would apply to all categories of workers. I strongly believe that the research being presented today would definitely inform all of these and better position my ministry to deliver the interventions that would make a positive impact on the labour market for both women and men,” he said.
Jordan said the other ways the island was implementing decent work initiatives was the completion of anti- discrimination legislation. (CA)
