Revised minimum wage likely to take effect on New Year’s Day



The Cabinet received assurances from the Attorney General that the Minimum Wage Committee will submit its recommendation in a few short weeks.

The Committee has been mandated to consult with stakeholders, for several months, before sharing its recommendation with the policy-making body.

When the Cabinet receives the Report and Recommendation, the Cabinet will make a decision before taking the matter to the Parliament for it to become law.

It is anticipated that by 1 January 2023, a new minimum wage will take effect.

  1. Fellow citizens of Antigua & Barbuda please note the MODAL VERB from this governmental statement, and it’s the word “LIKELY”.

    Does this mean it’s LIKELY to happen or LIKELY NOT to happen?

    Can you decide?

  2. Exactly,@Brix. Why not now? Why not pay back pay, raise minimum wage, fix the social security issue,settle up with the Jolly Beach and Liat workers, now? We are no jackasses that you can dangle promises before us. This subject came up in April and now, with elections looming, we are getting a barage of promises? They are struggling with paying salaries, how the hell are they going to handle wage increases?

  3. When a government has to form a committee to examine something that needs no questioning, just realize what they up to.

  4. I’ve not been following this very closely…is the minimum wage going up or are we looking to get the suprise of a lifetime on new year’s day when it goes down??
