NECA Tasks FG on January 1st 2019 minimum wage implementation | Jeremy spell blog

The Nigeria Employers’ Consultative
Association (NECA) says Federal Government
must conclude all legal processes for the
implementation of the 30,000 minimum
wage before Dec. 31, to ensure its
implementation by Jan. 1, 2019.
