NLC proposes N709,000 as minimum wage, TUC N447, 000

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has proposed N709,000 as the new minimum wage for workers.

 

 The Labour union proposed this at the ongoing public hearing on minimum wage in Abuja today March 7.

 

 

At the public hearing, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) proposed N447, 000 for consideration as the new minimum wage.

 

The two Labour unions said their figures were largely influenced by the present realities.

 

However, Kwara, Nasarawa, and Niger failed to propose any figure to pay their workers.

 

It was gathered that only Plateau state proposed N81,000 for consideration as the new national minimum.

 

Following the economic hardship in the country, the NLA and TUC have advocated for increase in minimum wage.
