Vanuatu minimum wage lifted

4:04 pm on 6 September 2019

The Vanuatu Minister of Home Affairs, Andrew Napuat, has increased the minimum wage by ten percent to $US1.59 per hour.

The Employment Act requires the minister to review the minimum wage every two years.

The Vanuatu Daily Post reported the minister saying he was aware of workers' wage concerns and at the rising cost of living, and this had prompted his move.
