The Labour Ministry’s Central Wage Committee has agreed to hold back on a plan to set a minimum hourly wage for part-time workers, committee chairman Somkiat Chayasriwong said on Friday.

The panel reported that a minimum hourly wage would not be appropriate at this time because there is no regulation regarding specific hours worked by part-time employees, said Mr Somkiat, the permanent secretary for labour.
