Aside from the three-sided board of trustees, he clarified, no other individual can without any assistance make an assurance regarding whether compensations of laborers will be expanded.
“Nobody gathering can simply sit in their own usual range of familiarity and decide compensation of laborers of this country.
“Pay rates are dictated by the three-sided panel and to the extent, I am mindful, to the extent the three-sided board has not finished up the dealings, I can’t say and no one can likewise that compensation [increment] will be frozen for this period.
“I imagine that we should all cautious when the exchanges for the lowest pay permitted by law begin and toward the finish of the dealings you will all know the result of the gathering. However, as far as I might be concerned, as I stay here this moment, it is extremely unlikely that I can say that there won’t be pay increment on the grounds that three-sided has decided no or zero compensation increment.
“Allow us to trust that the three-sided board of trustees will be up and doing and afterward concoct what is generally anticipated of the advisory group.”
