Hong Kong plans to raise the city's minimum wage to 30 HKD (3.87 USD) an hour, a minister said on December 12, in a hike slammed by labour groups as inadequate for the Asian financial hub. Known for its stunningly wealthy tycoons, the southern Chinese city is also home to hundreds of thousands of workers who live on hourly wages sometimes as low as 2 USD an hour prior to the introduction of the minimum wage.
