Shura Council approves Lebanon’s amended wage increase plan
Lebanon’s Shura Council has approved an amended wage increase proposed by Labor Minister Charbel Nahhas, the minister reported on Wednesday.
The revised plan now stipulates an increase from the current minimum wage of LL500,000 to LL800,000.
Salaries up to LL600,000 will receive a 100% increase. A second pay bracket between LL600,000 and LL1,500,000 will then receive a 25% increase.
However, the new plan also removes a LL200,000 increase that was approved in 2008, which the Council deemed illegal.
Salary increases then apply once the LL200,000 has been deducted.
