The increase in Ghana's minimum wage from GH¢11.82 to GH¢12.53 has caused a lot of talks among individuals all over the country. Many Ghanaians have come out to react to the news.
According to some Ghanaians, the decision of increasing the country's minimum wage by a few pesewas is not a great news.
“Increasing the minimum daily wage in the country is not great news for us, not at all. How can you increase transport fares by 18% and increase the minimum wage by only 6%”, a concerned Ghanaian stated.
Others also stated that, the decision is a concert party decision. According to them, the increment in the daily wage from GH¢11.82 to GH¢ 12.53 will not improve the standard of living of Ghanaians in any way.
“This is a concert party decision. 'Concert party country'. Imagine it if your child is given this amount of money as a daily wage. How much will he spend and how much will he be able to give to you?”, another individual questioned.
