Kuwaiti Minimum Wage

Kuwait has approved a minimum monthly wage, but only for firms with state contracts:
"Kuwait set a minimum monthly wage of 40 dinars (about Dh555) on Monday for some companies with state contracts after Asian workers demanding better pay rioted in the Gulf Arab state.

"The country now requires firms with cleaning and security contracts with state institutions to pay a net monthly minimum salary of 40 dinars for cleaners and 70 dinars (about Dh972) for civilian security staff, the cabinet said in a statement after a weekly meeting."
