08-20-2010 08:59 BJT

China's western province of Qinghai will raise the minimum wage from September. It will become the 27th province to do so this year.

Since Jiangsu Province initiated a minimum wage adjustment in February, nearly 90 percent of provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions have lifted their wage standard. The southern island province of Hainan has led the pack with a 37 percent increase in its minimum wage.

Currently the minimum wages in the country range from 570 to 1005 yuan per month. Only Guizhou and Gansu Provinces as well as Chongqing and Guangxi have not raised wages to date. But they are considering a change.
