Ministry of labor and social security of Henan province:
Ask for Instructions on Minimal Wage (YuLaoSheHan  No.56) from your bureau has been received. After disquisition, the following is the reply:
When the Regulation on Minimal Wage promulgated by our department and other documents concerning minimal wage were drafting, the system of social security is on its beginning stage. As a result the social insurance fees paid by individuals have not been taken into consideration, when Ministry promulgated regulation on the standard of minimal wage was decided. Up to now, this problem is not clarified in State laws, regulations and other regulative documents formulated by our department.
With a view to insuring the basic living conditions of the employee by the local government, and insuring the smooth operation of collecting fees of social insurance, social insurance fees paid by individuals shall be taken into account when the standard of minimal wage is decided and adjusted.
