Is there a minimum wage requirement in China?

The Labour Law provides a minimum wage requirement, which is determined at a provincial level. The 1993 Regulations on Minimum Wages in Enterprises (amended in October 1994) require all provinces, autonomous regions, and directly administered municipalities to set minimum wage standards and report them to the Ministry. Employers that fail to meet these standards may be ordered to compensate employees for the difference, pay other compensation, or both. Employers must also deduct and withhold employee individual income tax, social security and related payments.
