The New Year is shaping up for some big changes in Vietnam. Minimum wages are set to increase by approximately 5.7% as of January 1st, 2020. Depending on the industry and geographical region, some minimum wage rates may increase from the current rate of $6 USD to $10 USD. There have also been some new standards created for those who have received formal, vocational training. In these instances, employees must be paid (at a minimum) 7% more than the minimum salary level available.
Working in Pakistan has become a struggle for many people within the nation. The current economic condition of the country has increased uncertainty about worker rights. The Pakistan Workers Federation (PWF) has been created in order to speak for all employees within the country, regardless of their employment role. Last month, the PWF demanded that the Pakistan government finally implement labor laws that will secure (or at the very least, increase) workers’ rights (especially laborers).
