Draft Minimum Wage Rates 2024 Rs. 32000/- Per Month Punjab

The Minimum Wages Board Lahore, a government body in Punjab, has created a draft with recommendations for fixing the wages of skilled and semi-skilled workers. This draft pertains to workers’ salaries in industrial and commercial establishments in the Punjab province.

These recommendations are mandatory for all industrial undertakings that are located in Punjab. The minimum rates of wages recommended for unskilled workers and adult and adolescent workers must be applied uniformly throughout the province.

Purpose of Wages Fixation

The primary purpose of fixing minimum wages is to protect workers from low wages. Minimum wages can also be a part of a policy to reduce poverty and inequality, including gender-based disparities, by promoting equal pay for equal work. The government needs to pay attention to the fixation of wages. The primary purposes of fixing wages are:

  1. Fixing a minimum wage is meant to reduce poverty and ensure that all workers and their families have their basic needs met.
  2.  The primary objective of minimum wage fixation should be to provide wage earners with the necessary means to meet their basic needs.
  3.  It provides social protection by setting a minimum wage standard that employers must comply with.

The government should ensure that all provisions related to minimum wage fixation, as the law provides, are effectively applied.

Criteria for Wages Fixation

When fixing the wages of semi-skilled and skilled workers, the government must consider the following criteria:

  1. The needs of the workers and their families.
  2.  The general level of wages in the country.
  3.  The cost of living and any changes to it.
  4.  Social security benefits that the workers may be entitled to.
  5.  The relative living standards of other social groups.

By considering these criteria, the government can ensure that workers’ wages are fair and reasonable, assessing their needs and the economic situation in the country.

Importance and need of wage fixation

The recommendations for fixing workers’ wages in the industrial sector, whether they are skilled or semi-skilled, are all important. These recommendations will result in a significant increase in the level of wages, thereby promoting the rationalization and simplification of the wage scale.

By implementing these recommendations, workers will be able to earn wages commensurate with their skills and experience, improving their standard of living. This will also help promote a more equitable and fair work environment where workers are paid fairly.

Application of Recommendations

  • The recommendations for fixing minimum rates of wages for workers in industrial and commercial establishments must be applied to all industrial undertakings.
  •  These recommendations should be enforced by the Punjab Minimum Wages Act 2019 from the date of issuance.
  •  The minimum wages for all adult and adolescent workers should be applied uniformly throughout the province.
  •  The minimum wages for other categories of workers in any industry should be at least the minimum wage rate proposed for all adult and adolescent workers in the Punjab Province.
  •  The recommendations should cover the daily, weekly, and hourly working conditions, as well as overtime work, work on weekly days of rest, and paid holidays.

Deductions for Accommodation

  • Employers can deduct Rs. 396.80 per month for housingtocproviden to workers.
  •  Employers are also allowed to deduct Rs. 84.48 per month for providing transport to workers.
  •  These deductions are meant to provide some relief to employers while ensuring workers have access to basic amenities such as housing and transportation.
