On minimum wage, can you specify a minimum figure that you would consider as satisfying for young people?

On minimum wage, we have some guidance on our website but this varies depending on the area where the person works. CFYE has also developed a pilot study on living wage in eastern Uganda, and we’ve concluded that for an individual minimum wage is about $60.00 a month and for a family of two adults and 2, 1/2 children, it is about $350.00. These figures are only indicative.
