The first in a series of islandwide consultations on the national minimum wage is set to get underway in Montego Bay today.
The consultations are being hosted by the Minimum Wage Advisory Commission, as it embarks on a review of the national minimum wage and the minimum wage for security guards.
The minimum wage was last increased in February last year, when it moved from $4,070 per 40-hour work week to $4,500 for the same period.
The Minimum Wage for Industrial Security Guards was also increased, moving from $6,050 to $6,655 per 40-hour work week.
The meeting is set for the Montego Bay Civic Centre beginning at 1 p.m.
The Commission is urging members of the public and interested organisations to attend and put forward proposals for its consideration.
Other meetings are scheduled for Mandeville, Port Antonio, Ocho Rios and Kingston.
The deadline for written submissions and comments is Monday, July 2.
