What is Mywage Ghana?
Mywage Ghana is a website that offers free, fair and accessible information on wages, minimum wages, decent work and labour laws.
Why is this information featured on the website?
To increase awareness concerning laws and wages so that both workers and employers know about legislation and compliance. It is also hoped to stimulate dialogue around socio-economic issues with employees, employers, trade union representatives, government and academics/researchers.
Who can use Mywage Ghana?
Everybody! We try, as much as possible, to include material that is useful to both the formal and the informal sector, for employees and the self-employed. Those who are unemployed and seeking work will also benefit from the website.
How does Mywage get information about wages in Ghana?
Visitors to the site are encouraged to fill out the Salary Survey. It takes about 10 minutes, and details are confidential. Information from this survey is then gathered as data which reflects wages, as well as working conditions, for Ghanaian workers. The more surveys are filled out, the more wage data can be collected.
Is there any additional benefit to taking the survey?
Yes. Each year, one lucky person from Ghana who takes the survey will receive a cash prize of a minimum wage – the equivalent of one month’s minimum wage salary. Click here for further details.
