Minimum monthly wage for unskilled garment workers in Bangladesh is increased by 56.25%

The minimum monthly wage for unskilled garment workers in Bangladesh has increased by 56.25% recently, from BDT 8000 to BDT 12,500, which is equivalent to 113.6 U.S. dollars. Taking into account overtime entitlement and other allowances, the net take home for an unskilled worker gets around BDT 19,000 (may vary from factory to factory), which is around 173 dollars.
