5 June 2012

The national minimum wage for the private sector in East Timor has been set at US$115 per month, the same amount as for the public sector, the inspector-general for Work in East Timor, Aniceto Leto said in Dili Monday.

Noting that the law stipulates that the minimum wage will come into effect on 22 June, the inspector-general told Portuguese news agency Lusa that the figure would be revised every two years.

Setting the national minimum wage for the private sector at US$115 followed a meeting of the National Workers Commission with business owners. (macauhub)
