Abstract/Citation: Sets forth the recommendations of the National Wages Council regarding wage increases. Inter alia, the guidelines recommend that wage increases be moderated in view of projected slower economic growth. The NWC also recommends a dollar quantum wage increase, a variable payments system (bonuses based on company performance), a base-up wage system which sets wages according to merit and not seniority, more investment in training, stepped-up recruitment of women and older workers, and greater participation in co-payment schemes for medical expenses.
