The National Tripartite Committee (NTC) has increased the minimum wage to GH¢ 14.88 from the earlier GH¢13.53. The increase follows the conclusion of negotiations on the determination of the 2023 National Daily Minimum Wage (NDMW) at its meeting held on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, in Accra. Comparing Ghana’s rate to other countries like France, the UK, US, and Germany, Ghana’s rate is substantially very low. In France, the national minimum wage is $10.71 per hour, UK is $11.43 per hour $10.59 per hour in Germany, $7.25 per hour in the US, and GH¢14.88 ($1.06) per day in Ghana. The tripartite committee noted that the increase was strongly influenced by the current economic crisis.
