Proposed minimum wage gains traction with employers

After initial rejection and amid some continued reluctance, most employers are now ready to accept the K3600 a day minimum wage, provided a few conditions are met, the Ministry of Labour said. 
During a meeting on 25 July with employers who had objected to the government-proposed minimum and demanded instead to pay only a K2500 daily wage, the company heads said they could reach a compromise, according to Daw Win Maw Tun, deputy minister of labour.
