lThe ideal wage rate

Inoke Tuirara, Maumi, Bau, Tailevu | Saturday, June 3, 2017

IS the Opposition side in Parliament really serious about the proposed $4 minimum wage rate?

Don't get me wrong. It has been long overdue and the workers deserve it.

But even with the wage rate being constant, the cost of living still increases rapidly (regardless).

As much as we would like the minimum wage rate to be the maximum possible, we would not fancy imagining what the living costs would be like when the proposed $4 comes into place.

That would give merchants an ideal opportunity to put prices sky high.
