Bobboi said that the committee working on the minimum wage had almost concluded negotiations on the matter. He said:
“The tripartite meeting is holding today but I do not want to pre-empt the outcome or the level we have reached in our discussions, otherwise there will be unnecessary anxiety. But by the end of August, I am assuring you that workers will know what the agreed new minimum wage will be, ” he said.
