Nov. 16, 2012 - PRLog -- (Sunnyvale, CA)- Vietnam has proposed to raise minimum monthly wage by about 33% leading to higher operational costs for companies doing business in Vietnam. The proposal aims to increase the minimum wage range from the current $67-$96 per month to $89- $125 per month.

The proposal is due to be implemented in March 2013 but if the sluggish economic climate persists the government may further delay the minimum wage hike to September 2013.

The Vietnamese government proposed the hike after it found out that the current minimum wages cover only 60% of cost of living. Majority of local Vietnamese companies have supported the hike.
