'If a minimum wage earner can't afford the cost of living, the maximum wage earner won't sleep ... Senator Bruce


Senator Ben Murray-Bruce shared this warning via his official Facebook page and he wrote:

"Nigeria's Minimum wage of ₦18k will (not may) soon lead to Maximum wage if it remains the same while the cost of everything else skyrockets! Can a man earning ₦18k afford the new tariff for electricity, the new price for fuel, pay the price for rice that has doubled and still pay for accommodation and school fees? If a minimum wage earner cannot afford the cost of living then the maximum wage earner will not be able to sleep at night because of fear for his life!"
