Does New Minimum Wage Affect All Salary Earners? by abdeiz(m): 1:54am On Apr 20, 2019
I'm concerned about those who actually earn more than the minimum wage both in public and private sectors. Would this signage mean they also get an increment to their current salaries or it remains static?

My understanding is that it has little or no effect on everyone earning above minimum wage. That is how it is applied world over.
In my opinion, only cleaners, messengers and those whose wages are below N30k will be affected, therefore, any governor objecting to it or using it as excuse to owe salary should resign. In fact a serious Labour union would have determined the real impact on their states, but no, they will just be slumbering while the government deceive the populace with excuse of higher wage bills.

Minimum wage affects all workers' salary. The salary structure is computed using the minimum wage. The last minimum wage was computed using N18,000.

Now that it has changed to N30,000 workers salary will be adjusted to reflect the increase at all levels. Minimum wage increase is not just for cleaners

If it doesn't then that's going to suck a lot. I really hope it cuts across all levels.

Is it also applicable in private sector? These so called bosses could be wicked. Imagine paying workers #15 000 and also ensure that they work like slaves.

With the increase from 18,000 to 30,000 for Grade 01 Step 1, those above that level must have their salaries adjusted because a lower grade cannot earn than higher ones.

However, the degree of adjustments for all levels from 01 to 17 will not be the same and not in proportion to the increase in the minimum wage.

The same % the minimum wage is increased is the same % every other worker in all levels is increased

It will effect on civil servant, and reputable organization.

Don't expect that mushroom school paying #6500 to a classroom teacher to pay that.

Going by percentage increment, it is about 66.7% increment but I doubt if it would be calculated based on that at all levels.

Time for some companies to stylishly add the job of cleaner to the main staff

I was working as electrician in a furniture company in 2017, they were paying me a stipend less than 40k, I threatened to resign not because of the low income but cos they owed salary like kilode. When the chairman get major contract, and its executed, he will fly abroad with his wife.

A times they will carry me home to fix chairman's house electric fault

I told the MD I was going to resign, the MD pleaded "Is it cos of ur salary" I said No

The next day, MD called me on phone cos I did not go to work, that mgt has increase my take home, and has also given more task to supervise cleaners...


I just laughed and asked them to hold their money...

Re: Does New Minimum Wage Affect All Salary Earners? by LogicStatement: 9:50am On Apr 20, 2019
In an organisation where the least cadre is earning below N30,000 then, it will be increased to the new wage which will affect all other levels. But in an organisation where the least already earns N30,000 or above, the organisation may not effect any change. The important thing with this law is that any organisation with staff of 25 people and above must make sure they pay the least worker at least N30,000
