Labour Calls For Immediate Implementation As Senate Passes 30,000 Minimum Wage

The Nigerian Labour Congress has urged the government at all levels to begin the implementation of the new national minimum wage following approval by the Senate.
The Upper chamber of the National Assembly today passed the 30,000 minimum wage bill following the footstep of the House of Representatives which had earlier passed the bill.
Acting President of the NLC, Comrade Najeem Yasin made this plea while commended the Senate for passing the bill into law
According to him “We commend the senate for the quick passage. But it is not yet over because we want them to make sure that the process gets to the logical conclusion and for the quick implementation of that N30, 000.
“We stand by the N75, 000 punishment for employers who fail to implement the law which has been passed. We have been fighting for this N30, 000 for a long time and the governors have been opposed to it. But now, it has been passed. Nigerian workers are now looking forward to the signing of the bill into law.
“We want them to start implementing it before the May Day celebration so that Nigerian workers can have good reasons to celebrate.”
