The Sindh Minimum Wage Board has made upward revisions to the wages of factory workers. Zulfiqar Ali Nizamani, Chairman of the Sindh Minimum Wage Board, announced that skilled workers in the province will now have a minimum monthly wage of Rs 33,280, while unskilled workers will receive Rs 32,000 per month. These revised minimum wages will take effect from July 1, 2023.
Nizamani emphasized that it is mandatory for factory owners to adhere to these minimum wage regulations, and individuals with objections to the decision have a 14-day window to submit them.
Furthermore, Chairman Nizamani warned that strict action will be taken against those who fail to pay their workers the mandated minimum wages.
In a related development, the Sindh High Court (SHC) has directed the enforcement of the minimum wage set by the Sindh government. The SHC bench specifically ordered the government to ensure that sanitary workers receive a minimum of Rs 25,000 per month. Additionally, the labor department has been tasked with collecting reports from various departments for a comprehensive review of the matter.
