The National Organization of Trade (UNIONS) an umbrella for workers unions is asking government to quickly institute and operationalise the minimum wage board.
This comes as Uganda is preparing to join the rest of the World tomorrow to mark the International Labor Day that is celebrated every 1st May.
As workers mark this day, labour exploitation is on the increase in Uganda due to absence of a minimum wage and delays by government to constitute a minimum wage board to study the current salaries, set and implement a minimum wage for all workers.
The absence of a minimum wage for workers in Uganda has resulted into labour exploitation because most workers are paid salaries not worth the work done and to the wish of their employers.
According to NOTU chair Wilson Wafana, the minimum wage board is long overdue.
