Taiwan’s Labour Ministry’s Ministry Wage Review Committee has decided to hike the minimum monthly wage by 4.05 percent or NT$1,070, and hourly wage by 3.9 percent, or NT$7, pending Cabinet review. The proposed increases will raise the minimum monthly wage from the current NT$26,400 (US$823) to NT$27,470 and the minimum hourly wage from NT$176 to NT$183.

If approved by the Cabinet, it will mark the eight consecutive annual increase in the minimum wage. Any minimum wage hike does not apply to live-in migrant caregivers and domestic helpers, who are not covered by Taiwan’s Labour Standards Act.
