government will implement the policy to increase the daily minimum wage to 300
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has confirmed that the government will implement the policy to increase the daily minimum wage to 300 baht while asking the society to wait and see its result.
Speaking at Parliament, Ms Yingluck countered the attempt of the opposition to interpret the wordings used in the policy statement concerning the minimum wage hike. She stressed that she was sincere in raising the minimum wage to enable labourers to have higher income and wanted the society to watch the result of her policy rather than trying to find fault with the description in the policy statement.
The prime minister believed that people will listen and understand this issue despite the opposition’s interpretation. She said she is intent on pushing forward the policies announced during her election campaigns into implementation.
Ms Yingluck noted that some details of the policies might change when it comes to the actual operation while the policy statement is just to elaborate the general framework. She however stressed that the intention of her Pheu Thai Party announced in election campaigns remain the same.
Writing via her facebook this morning, Ms Yingluck assured the public that all policies of the government will be able to solve both facing and long-term problems for the best benefits of people and the nation. She asked all sides to wait for the results of the operation.
