A committee tasked with investigating the territory’s minimum wage recommended an increase from $4 per hour to $6 per hour.
On Monday morning in the House of Assembly, Deputy Premier Dr. Kedrick Pickering laid on the table the full report, which also includes the results of a survey of business owners and workers including minimum wage earners.
Lawmakers also began their debate on the Employee Mobility Act, which Attorney General Baba Aziz explained needs amendments to make it easier for public workers to transition between statutory bodies and central government.
The House went into closed-door committee debate on the Employee Mobility Act at about 12:30 p.m. When legislators return, they’re scheduled to debate an amendment to the Insurance Act.
