Abstract: This article looks at the case for introducing a minimum wage institution with reference to Hong Kong as an example. This now semi autonomous region (SAR) of China has a free wage economy with little regulation by government, and the absence of a general statutory floor on wages. However, growing problems of unemployment and a drift towards part time and other forms of atypical employment associated with low wages have raised minimum wage legislation as an issue. The article draws upon a recent study of employees and management, which investigates the respondents' perception of a minimum wage law in Hong Kong. The findings enable the authors to identify a number of strategic aspects and implications surrounding the inception of a minimum wage system in a new Asian economy.
