Labour Proposes N436,500 ($300) as New Minimum Wage for Nigerian Workers

The labour union has suggested a new minimum wage of $300 (N436,500) for Nigerian workers, emphasizing the eroded value of the current N30,000 minimum wage.
The proposal was made during meetings in Nasarawa State, citing concerns about the impact of the high exchange rate and the removal of fuel subsidy on the cost of living.
The demand also includes the payment of arrears from the previous wage award. Additionally, the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Joe Ajaero, highlighted challenges with governors’ compliance with the proposed base pay structure.
