They noted that this increment will be effective from 4th June, 2021.
Following this, the general secretary of Ghana Trade Union Congress (GTUC) has further explained that this increment is only applicable to workers who earn below the daily minimum wage. He noted that such persons should make an adjustment for their salaries with their various employers.
Dr. Yaw Baah noted that though the increment is very small compared to the expectations of the Union at the meeting. According to him, this amount will be able to make life comfortable for a husband, his wife and at least two kids.
