Thailand to Increase Minimum Wage

The National Wage Committee of Thailand’s Ministry of Labour has announced a new minimum daily wage, which will take effect on 1 January 2020. The announcement increases the minimum wage by Baht 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 Baht 5 in all other provinces. With these changes, the sliding scale for the minimum daily wage in 2020 will range from Baht 313 to Baht 336. 

If you have any questions about this change, or any other aspect of labor and employment in Thailand, please contact Khun Pimvimol (June) Vipamaneerut at [email protected] or at +66 2056 5588.
