Minimum Wages Act
A minimum wage job can provide a strong letter of recommendation to a former employee when they choose to move on to something more lucrative. This type of recommendation letter as a fringe benefit costs the employer. Benefits for minimum wage jobs can be difficult to negotiate due to the fact that most minimum wage jobs are low-paying because the work itself generates low revenue. What this means is that management is faced with a difficult decision on whether to provide the option for group health coverage or other benefits.
Every unskilled worker, other than an apprentice, employed in a commercial or industrial establishment situated in an area specified in column 1 of the Schedule, shall be paid wages at a rate not lower than the minimum wages per month specified against such area in column 2 of the Schedule.
