Thailand to Increase Minimum Wage across All Provinces

The National Wage Committee of Thailand’s Ministry of Labour has announced a new minimum daily wage, which will take effect on January 1, 2020. The announcement increases the minimum wage by THB 6 per day for workers in nine provinces—Bangkok, Chon Buri, Nakhon Pathom, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Phuket, Prachin Buri, Samut Prakan, and Samut Sakhon—and by THB 5 in all other provinces. 

With these changes, the sliding scale for the minimum daily wage in 2020 will range from THB 313 to THB 336, as detailed in the table below.

If you have any questions about this change, or any other aspect of labor and employment in Thailand, please contact Pimvimol (June) Vipamaneerut at [email protected] or at +66 2056 5588.
