Mozambique: On the new statutory minimum wage

Basilio Muhate [pt] talks briefly about the consensus reached by Mozambique's trade unions and the employers’ associations in the negotiations for a new statutory minimum wage in eight of the nine sectors defined by the government. “If indeed there has been a consensus, it is a good step from the diplomatic point of view. The big question is whether this consensus will have multiplier effects on individual consumption and on the ability to afford staple foods in Mozambique”.
