Minister Manase said this is in response to calls for a new minimum wage determination to be set.
He said a new determination cannot be made unless there is proper justification.
In a media conference over the weekend, the Minister said he was informed of calls from worker representative bodies requesting for a new determination to be made to the minimum wage.
The last minimum wages determination was back in 2014, with the current rate set at K3.50.
Minister Manase said a new determination can only be made once there is sufficient validation.
