China This Week, February 27

Minimum Wage In China

A suggestion by a local lawmaker in southern China’s economic powerhouse province of Guangdong to scrap the minimum wage scheme has generated howls of protest.

To help reduce the impact of the global economic slowdown on manufacturing enterprises in the region, he floated the idea of cancelling the hard won minimum wage system for blue-collar workers. 

The nationally available Worker’s Daily quickly condemned the idea, and warned the public to be on the alert for any possible violations of their rights under the guise of measures designed to mitigate the effects of the financial crisis.
