The issue of minimum wage is an interesting thing to study. At the end of each year the government issued a policy to set minimum wages that must be paid by the company to its workers. Surely this is not an easy thing to do. Consider that Parties unions demanding higher minimum wages because the wages have not been able to meet their daily lives. Meanwhile, the employer argued that the wage increase would increase the cost of production which led to the company becoming uncompetitive in the industrialized world.
