10月に発効した最低賃金は、夏から秋にかけての大幅な物価上昇を考慮していない金額です。そこで、『来年4月にも再改正して、それを考慮した最低賃金額とする』よう、厚労省への再度の申し入れを11月21日に予定しています。The minimum wage that went into effect in October does not take into account the large price increases that will take place during the summer and fall. Therefore, we are planning to make another request to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) on November 21 to “rerevise the minimum wage in April of next year to take these increases into account.

In France, Germany, and other foreign countries, the minimum wage is revised several times a year, and in Japan, as stipulated in Article 12 of the Minimum Wage Law, it is possible to revise the minimum wage again (more than once per year).

First of all, it depends on how the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and local labour bureau chiefs approach (“consult”) the Central Minimum Wage Council and Local Minimum Wage Councils.

There is no need for the Kishida government to consult with business over wage increases. The government can raise wages by simply increasing the minimum wage
