SJM’s 5 percent pay increase may set benchmark

    Sociedade de Jogos de Macau SA’s decision to raise wages by 5 percent will set a benchmark for other industries, MSS Recruitment Ltd managing director Jiji Tu was cited as saying by local media. Overall, wages could increase by between 5 percent and 10 percent this year, pushed up by a shortage of workers. Rising wage costs are seen as one cloud in Macau’s otherwise sunny outlook.
