4. Labour Institutions (Amendment) Bill 2011

This Bill sought to increase the minimum wages by 50% due to inflation and rising cost of living. This Bill would lead to the betterment of living conditions for majority of Kenyan workers. Though it was not concluded by the time of expiry of the 10th Parliament due to timelines of constitutional bills, Hon Mututho successfully pursued the matter with the Minister for Labour who established the Floricultural Wages Council on 14th November 2012. The Council was gazetted in 2013 with specific mandate to look into issues of remuneration for workers in the floriculture sector. This Bill was done and pushed against a backdrop of intense resistance from KFC, FKE and KEPSA but Hon Mututho faithfully pushed on, informed by the plight of workers in flower farms in Naivasha and the rest of the country.
