Minimum Wage Raised For Hotels Employees In Bangkok & 10 Provinces

In a move aimed at addressing wage disparities in Thailand’s tourism sector, the Wage Committee has announced a significant increase in minimum wages for employees working in 4-star hotels across 10 provinces especially Bangkok. Effective April 13th, the minimum wage will be raised to 400 baht for eligible employees, specifically those in hotels with a minimum of 50 employees. The decision reflects the committee’s recognition of the vital role the tourism industry plays in the Thai economy.

The wage hike will impact employees in specific areas within the designated provinces. In Bangkok, the increase applies exclusively to hotels situated in the Pathumwan and Wattana districts. Similarly, in Krabi province, only areas under the jurisdiction of the Ao Nang Tambon Administrative Organisation will see the wage adjustment. Other provinces included in the wage increase are Chon Buri, Chiang Mai, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Phang-nga, Phuket, Rayong, Songkhla, and Surat Thani, with designated areas listed accordingly.

The decision comes as a response to the substantial revenues generated by the tourism industry in these provinces. By addressing wage concerns, the Wage Committee aims to ensure fair compensation for employees while supporting the continued growth of the tourism sector. The committee emphasized that its decision was informed by consultations with various stakeholders, including employers and employees within the hotel industry.

With this move, the Thai government seeks to balance the needs of both employers and employees in the tourism sector, recognizing the importance of sustainable and equitable growth. As the country looks to recover from the economic impacts of the global pandemic, initiatives like these are crucial in fostering resilience and prosperity in key industries.
