Muscat: The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Labor for Labor His Excellency Nasr bin Amer Al Hosani confirmed that the minimum wage has not been canceled and it remains the same, but there was no decision originally to link wages and qualifications, and accordingly the circular regarding “not linking qualifications to wages”

In 2013 – based on a cabinet decision – the Minister of Manpower – at the time – issued a decision to raise the minimum wage for Omanis in the private sector to RO 325, distributed as follows: RO 225 basic wages + 100 Omani riyals as a bonus, and this decision is the last in raising the minimum wage for Omanis In the private sector.

Al Hosani indicated that the ministry decided that the work contract should be by mutual consent between the two parties, provided that it is not less than the minimum wage, but rather an entry point for job researchers to the labor market.

The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Labor confirmed that most of the jobs offered from most sectors require experience, and this requires the job seeker to join a job, and it is better for job seekers to wait for them to live in jobs that are currently available within the replacement programs that we do in all sectors, with the aim of reducing the number of job seekers.

He added: Be in good faith and the aim of all this is to provide quick job opportunities for job seekers, stressing the number of job seekers is “big”, and all we can do at this economic stage and not be an obstacle to not being placed in a job.

Al Hosani explained: One of the ministry’s tasks is to regulate the labor market, and this pushes us at this time specifically to one decision, which is “replacement,” and there is a series of changes coming in the replacement policies, employment policies and changes in procedures in various sectors.
