Accordingly, the Ministry still maintains the proposal to increase Region minimum wage from July 1, although there were many opinions of businesses proposing to increase the minimum wage from the beginning of next year.

According to the report of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, from July 1, the regional minimum wage will be adjusted to an average of 6% (respectively increased from 180,000 to 260,000 VND) compared to the current minimum wage.

The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs recommends monthly minimum wages in four regions. Specifically, Region I is 4,680,000 VND/month, Region II is 4,160,000 VND/month, Region III is 3,640,000 VND/month, Region IV is 3,250,000 VND/month.

In addition to the monthly regional minimum wage, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs also proposes an hourly minimum wage. Specifically, zone 1 is 22,500 VND/hour, zone 1 is 20,000 VND/hour, zone 3 is 17,500 VND/hour, zone 4 is 15,600 VND/hour.

According to the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, the adjustment of regional minimum wages at this time is very necessary, because usually, regional minimum wages are reviewed and adjusted after one year of implementation. However, since the beginning of 2020 due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Government has maintained the regional minimum wage in 2019.

Currently, the region’s minimum wage no longer guarantees the minimum standard of living of workers and their families according to the provisions of the Labor Code.

Facing different opinions on the hourly minimum wage, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs said that it is necessary to reconsider the method of determining the hourly minimum wage based on the equivalent conversion from the monthly minimum wage and working time. standard. The purpose is to protect the interests of workers who do flexible, part-time jobs.

However, according to the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, in Vietnam, the labor law does not stipulate the distinction between full-time workers (applying a monthly minimum wage) and part-time workers ( hourly minimum wage applies), so there is no basis for calculating an additional factor in addition to the hourly minimum wage.

In addition, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs believes that if an additional coefficient is calculated to have a higher minimum hourly wage, employees will switch from a monthly salary, full-time and stable work to an hourly wage. This creates a great disturbance in labor relations, directly affects the production and business of enterprises, and may affect the development goals and expansion of the subjects participating in compulsory social insurance. .

From this fact, according to the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, experts from the International Labor Organization (ILO) recommend that Vietnam choose a method of converting monthly wages, especially in the first time implementing regulations on minimum hourly wages. to avoid disturbance, then continue with the perfect study.
