By Shermain Bique-Charles (Antigua Observer) After staging several meetings and discussions in recent months, the National Minimum Wage Advisory Committee met for its last engagement on Friday.
The committee, which was established in February, includes members from the Employers Federation, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Hotels and Tourism Association, among others.
They have been discussing a potential increase in the current minimum wage which stands at $8.20 per hour.
According to reliable sources, the deliberations went well and there is every likelihood that a final report will be forthcoming within months.
The committee will make certain recommendations to Labour Minister, Steadroy Benjamin, before a decision on the long-awaited increase is made.
