Shanghai's monthly minimum wage is 2,590 yuan

  According to the "Minimum Wage Regulations", the minimum wage standard generally takes the form of a monthly minimum wage standard and an hourly minimum wage standard.

The monthly minimum wage standard applies to full-time employed workers, and the hourly minimum wage standard applies to part-time employed workers.

  Judging from the monthly minimum wage, Shanghai's monthly minimum wage is 2,590 yuan, the highest in the country.

  Moreover, the “gold content” of the monthly minimum wage standard in Shanghai is also higher, because the monthly minimum wage standard in Shanghai does not include the social insurance premiums and housing provident funds paid by individual workers according to law, which are paid by the employer separately.

Beijing has the highest hourly minimum wage

  From the perspective of the hourly minimum wage standard, the hourly minimum wage standard in Beijing is 25.3 yuan, the highest in the country.

What is the impact of the minimum wage hike?

  According to the "Minimum Wage Regulations", under the circumstance that the laborer provides normal labor, the wages that the employer should pay to the laborer shall not be lower than the local minimum wage standard after excluding the following items: extended working hours wages; middle and night shifts , high temperature, low temperature, underground, poisonous and harmful and other special working environment, allowances; laws, regulations and state regulations, labor welfare benefits, etc.

  Therefore, the increase of the minimum wage standard will help to increase the income of employees, especially the wage level of low-income employees has a direct effect.

  In addition, unemployment insurance benefits linked to the minimum wage, sick leave wages during the medical treatment period, wages during the probationary period, and the basic living expenses of employees in the event of a shutdown or suspension of work, etc., will also rise with the rise of the minimum wage standard.

  Su Hainan, a special researcher of the China Labor Society, said that the minimum wage adjustment should properly handle the balance between the protection of employees' rights and interests in minimum labor remuneration and the affordability of enterprises, and to meet the basic needs of low-income workers and their dependents. , but also to ensure that enterprises can withstand the increase in labor costs driven by the increase in minimum wages and achieve sustainable development, both of which must be well coordinated and balanced.
