Do you pay employees the minimum wage? There will be a statutory minimum hourly wage. Currently the minimum wage is determined per month. Because of this someone who works 40 hours per week has a lower hourly minimum wage than someone working 36 hours per week. This will change with the implementation of the statutory minimum hourly wage. As a result the minimum hourly wage is the same, no matter the length of the working week.
The implementation of the hourly minimum wage ensures that working more hours always leads to a higher income.
