Thailand to increase minimum wage across all provinces

The National Wage Committee of Thailand’s Ministry of Labour has announced a new minimum daily wage, which will take effect on January 1, 2020. The announcement increases the minimum wage by THB 6 per day for workers in nine provinces—Bangkok, Chon Buri, Nakhon Pathom, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Phuket, Prachin Buri, Samut Prakan, and Samut Sakhon—and by THB 5 in all other provinces.

With these changes, the sliding scale for the minimum daily wage in 2020 will range from THB 313 to THB 336, as detailed in the table below:
