The board made consultations within and outside Uganda   in countries including Tanzania and Kenya.
They recommended that the minimum wage should be at uganda shillings one hundred Thirty-six thousand 136,000 for all Ugandans monthly.
It also called for the passing of the minimum wage bill in to an act.
