HK set to import 5,000 mainlanders on minimum wages

Staggering from Hong Kong’s decades- long industrial downturn, labor leaders capitulated Tuesday to demands by manufacturers to import low-wage textile workers from the mainland.

In return, employers agreed for the first time to impose minimum wages in specific cases.

The Labour Advisory Board, a 12- strong policy unit composed equally of employer and employee representatives, agreed to a government proposal to import up to 5,000 mainland textile and garment workers on a minimum wage of HK$200-HK$235 a day.
