Thai authorities are studying whether to increase the daily minimum wage. The Labour Ministry will start a feasibility study. The State Enterprises Workers Relations Confederation has recommended 492 baht as the starting pay.

Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin told reporters that the Office of the Permanent Secretary for the Labour Ministry would conduct a study to examine the minimum wage’s suitability.

According to a TLSC representative Sawit Kaewvarn, his committee and Serc requested the probe on December 21 last year since the economy was hit severely, resulting in greater expenditures for consumer goods, food, and gasoline, among other things.

Figures from the Labour Ministry show the current minimum wage starts at 313 baht and goes up to 336 baht, varying in provinces. According to the data, the minimum wage in Bangkok is 331 baht, 325 baht in Chiang Mai, and 336 baht in Chon Buri.
