The current minimum salary stands at NT$23,100 (US$744) a month, or NT$150 (US$4.83) per hour.
Hsu said that from labor’s point of view, she hoped there would be a raise, but the size of any hike would be up to the committee, the Central News Agency quoted her as saying.
The committee includes representatives from employers, unions, government and academia and meets each quarter to decide what to do about the minimum wage, with changes most likely to be introduced the following January 1. This time, the date of any changes precedes the next presidential and legislative elections by just 10 days. [FULL STORY]
