Premier Su Tseng-chang has approved a plan to raise Taiwan’s minimum wage starting on the first of January, 2022. 

Under the plan, the minimum wage will go up 5.21%, with the minimum monthly wage set at NT$25,250 (US$900) and the minimum hourly wage set at NT$168 (US$6). 

Su says that around 2.4 million workers are expected to benefit from the increase in the minimum wage. He called on the economics and labor ministries to communicate with businesses that will be affected by the raised minimum wage.
