Jordanian apparel owners are concerned about rising minimum wage

The owners of the Jordanian clothing department expressed concern about the increase in the minimum wage from 150 Jordanian dinars to 190 dinars, which will increase their operating expenses by 15-20% and affect the competitiveness of the clothing sector.

The issue was raised at a meeting organized by the Jordanian Fashion, Accessories and Textile Exporters Association (JGATE) on Friday and representatives from the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Industry and Trade attended the meeting.

Minister of Labor Mach. Al-Wahid told the Financial Committee of the House of Commons last week that the Ministry of Labor plans to raise the minimum wage to 190 dinars next year to encourage citizens in rural areas to participate in the work.

Chief Executive Officer of the Jordanian Association of Exporters of Apparel, Accessories and Textiles. Kulmah said at the meeting: "We have no objection to raising the living conditions of Jordanian workers, but we do not think that the above minimum wage is the solution." He asked the government to exclude the garment sector from the minimum wage increase.

Jordan’s clothing sector has 16,000 Jordanians and 27,000 foreign workers. Kulma pointed out that the decision on the minimum wage distinguishes between local workers and foreign workers, which contradicts Article 6 of the free trade agreement between Jordan and the United States.

However, Fathallah Emrani, president of the Jordanian Federation of Textiles and Apparel Industries, said that excluding Jordanian workers in Qualified Industrial Zones (QIZ) from the increase in minimum wages will cause setbacks and leave workers in the textile sector.

Kulmah asked garment companies in Jordan to pay for their workers, even if they set a minimum wage of 190 dinars and do not include cash benefits.
