The Kenyan government has revealed the revised minimum wage structure for a variety of professions, categorized according to different demographics.

The move, detailed in the Regulation of Wages (General) (Amendment) Order 2022, aims to ensure fair compensation for workers across the country.

General laborers, including cleaners, gardeners, and day watchmen, will receive varying monthly salaries based on their location.

Those working in major cities such as Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, and Naivasha are entitled to a minimum wage of Ksh15,202, while their counterparts in former municipalities will receive Ksh14,025. Workers in the rest of the country are set to earn Ksh8,109.

Miners, which include stone cutters and cooks, face different wage scales. In city environments, they can expect Ksh16,417, whereas those in former municipalities will receive Ksh14,566. The rest of the country offers a minimum of Ksh9,370.

Night watchmen are compensated based on their location, with city workers earning Ksh16,959 monthly, former municipality workers receiving Ksh15,722, and others getting Ksh9,672.

Machine attendants, machinists, print operators, designers, tailors, and drivers of medium-sized vehicles have distinct pay rates depending on their job roles and geographical locations.

Cashiers, heavy commercial vehicle drivers, and salesman drivers will receive daily rates translating to Ksh34,302 for city workers, Ksh32,280 for former municipality employees, and Ksh30,266 for those in other areas.

The wage adjustments aim to address disparities in living costs across different regions. It reflects the government’s commitment to ensuring that individuals, regardless of their profession, receive fair compensation to support their livelihoods.

This move is expected to have a positive impact on the well-being of workers and contribute to a more equitable economic landscape in Kenya.
