Summary The minimum wage for garment workers in Bangladesh has been raised. But will workers get the full benefit?
Inflation has soared in Bangladesh since the minimum wage was last increased in 2010, and the amount was widely agreed to be inadequate. In the aftermath of Rana Plaza, the Government set up a tripartite wages board. Now it has recommended an increase of 77% in the minimum wages for the garment industry.
