According to a survey conducted by Wage Indicator Foundation in Karachi during late 2010, with sample size of 1626 persons, 4.65 % of the respondents earn less than the national minimum wage which is currently fixed as PKR 7,000. However, the surprising feature is that 69.8% of these underpaid are either semi-skilled or highly skilled once we take into account the educational attainments.
