Under Prakas 247, workers in the above sectors will be entitled to the following new minimum wage:
- for regular workers, USD 200 per month.
- for probationary workers, USD 198 per month.
The other benefits to which the workers in the GTF sectors are entitled remain unchanged, such as compensation for a transportation or accommodation allowance of USD 7 per month, an attendance bonus of USD 10 per month, a food allowance of USD 0.5 per day (or one free meal per day) for workers who work overtime and a seniority bonus from USD 2 to USD 11 per month for workers in their second to the eleventh years of service.
Under the Law on Minimum Wage, which was promulgated on 6 July 2018, the key factors in determining the minimum wage include social considerations (such as inflation rates and living expenses) and economic considerations (such as productivity, competition, job market status and profitability of a particular industry). The discussions on the minimum wage are conducted on an annual basis, unless decided otherwise by the National Council on the Minimum Wages, and such minimum wage is determined by a Prakas issued by the MLVT.
