The labor union GEFONT has warned of agitation if the government does not increase the minimum wage for the workers. “The government had committed to increase the minimum wage every two years. But two and a half years has already passed without any increase,” said deputy general secretary of GEFONT, Bishnu Lamsal. He said that they will launch agitation if the increase is not announced within a month. The Ministry of Labor and Transport Management officials, however, say that they cannot increase the minimum wage due to the interim order issued by the Supreme Court (SC), which has stayed any change in the wage. At present, the minimum wage for workers is set at RS 4600 per month.
