Beijing's Minimum Wage Up by 20 Per Cent

The minimum wage in Beijing has been increased by 20% to 1,160 yuan (US$175) from 960 yuan ($145), reports ChannelNews Asia. The increase will take effect on January 1.


The hike is the second time in six months. In July, the minimum wage was increased by 20% to 960 yuan.


The latest increase in Beijing comes amid growing soaring food costs, rising property prices and China's widening wealth gap, says ChannelNews Asia.
