The Union Government will enhance minimum wages and make it mandatory across the country for pushing economic growth and creating jobs, Labour Secretary Shankar Aggarwal today said.

“We will create a law to give certain minimum wages across the country in all trades,” he said while addressing at a conference organised by CII in the national Capital.

He further said, “We will increase the wages under Minimum Wage Act so that workers have decent wages aligned with inflation and have some money to buy goods and services.”
