The move was announced Monday while unveiling findings of Labor Force Survey conducted by the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda (NISR).
Statistics show that 84% of people eligible to work already have jobs. The survey points out that the government still uses labor law of 1974 determining Rwf100 for every employee per day.
The law has been criticized by different non-government organizations advocating for rights of employees saying that the cost of living is very high and doesn’t match the current salary policy.
Kayirangwa told the media that wage policy reform discussions were held and completed.
“Restructuring was completed; we are waiting for the completion of new labor law and consider policies in setting up minimum wage” Kankindo said
