Cabinet approves Bt400 minimum wage for hotel workers in specific locations

Share

The Cabinet has approved a proposal to raise the minimum wage for employees of 4-star hotels in certain tourist provinces to 400 baht/day, beginning on April 13. This decision follows Pheu Thai’s pledge during the 2023 election campaign to increase Thailand’s minimum wage from 340 baht/day to 600 baht/day by 2027.

Initially, the first step in this plan was scheduled to increase the minimum wage to 400 baht/day in early 2024, but it was later adjusted to 360 baht/day, with promises of additional raises in the future. This move is part of a larger effort by the government to address income inequality and improve living standards for workers in the country.

With this endorsement from the Cabinet, employees in these specific areas can expect a boost in their wages come April. This decision marks a significant step towards fulfilling Pheu Thai’s campaign promise to raise the minimum wage to 600 baht/day by 2027, providing hope for improved economic conditions for workers in Thailand.
