Mauritius: A minimum wage demanded by trade unions




The Mauritius Labour Congress bringing together the main unions informed the ministry of finance in the context of the presentation of the Budget in November next in their desire to see the establishment in Mauritius of a minimum wage equivalent to 15,000 rupees (365 euros).
 
This request was sent through the drafting of a statement setting out the main union demands.
 
Strong measures to curb loss of power on the island as well as to combat debt of households and fight poverty in the country were also highlighted and proposed to the Government of Mauritius, as reported by the newspaper Le Matinal.
 
As a reminder, the Confederation of workers of the private sector (CSTP) reported on its side in May 2013 that more than 100,000 workers from the private sector, including 80% of women were paid less than 6,000 rupees per month (146 euros) in Mauritius.
