The National minimum wage bill has been passed by the Senate.
The passage of the bill came subsequent to the submission of the report of the ad hoc committee set up to review the minimum wage.
The amount approved in the bill is thirty thousand.
A request was also made to the executive arm of government to submit a supplementary budget, which would include the structure of the new national minimum wage.
The House of Representatives had also earlier approved the new figure as the national minimum wage.
