There's talk of putting up Fiji's minimum wage to $4, but I reckon that is just not enough. In Australian dollars that is probably about $3 so with the high cost of living in Fiji, how can a worker look after his or her family? Some of my relatives work in the tourist industry and get little more than the minimum wage which is $2.32F. And they are expected to smile a lot ! Hotel accommodation may be from $40 to $1000 a night so where does that money go to? Story from the Fiji Sun.
