Helpers' minimum wage unchanged

The Minimum Allowable Wage for foreign domestic helpers will remain at $4,630 per month, while the monthly food allowance will be increased by $52 to not less than $1,173, the Government announced today.   It made the decision after carefully considering Hong Kong's general economic and labour market conditions over the past year, as well as its near-term economic outlook, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.   The employers' affordability and the helpers' livelihood were also taken into consideration.   Under the Standard Employment Contract for hiring helpers, employers must provide them with free food or pay them a food allowance.
