Workers, investors conformity necessary for applying minimum wage; Minister

Minister of Planning Ashraf al-Arabi highlighted the importance of the wages’ minimum issue, saying that the government is giving priority to this issue in the coming period.

The National Council of Wages, in its new formation, seeks to strike a balance between the workers’ aspirations in the private and public sectors as the first step toward achieving social justice and at the same time not harming employers, al-Arabi said.

Setting a wages maximum is a legal demand due to the abnormal disparity in the salaries of some employers in the government, a matter which reflects a great imbalance in the wages’ structure in Egypt.

The National Council of Wages aims, over the coming period, at working out national policies for wages to achieve the needed balance.
