The Cabinet today approved to take necessary steps to increase the daily wage of estate workers to Rs. 1000.

Although several rounds of discussions were held with the parties signed the "Estate employee salaries collective agreement 2019 - 2021", one party; Ceylon Employers' Association representing the estate owners' association who is one party of the collective agreement has proposed to increase the daily wage up to Rs. 920/-.
