New Minimum Wage will end disparity payment based on gender

On 1 January 2024, Grenada will commence a method of compensation to workers both in the private and public sectors that will see the end of disparity in salary based on gender and at the same time enforce a minimum livable wage.

“As most of us will know, we have a disparity between male and female workers in certain sectors, particularly the agriculture sector, and the recommendation is that it should be a thing of the past as we move towards greater equality among our workers,” Labour Minister Hon. Claudette Joseph told journalists during a news conference earlier this week.
