Tynwald is to consider increasing the minimum wage in the Isle of Man for the first time since April 2010.
The changes, if approved, would mean an increase from £6.10 an hour to £6.20, to come into effect on 1 November.
The recommendation, which was put forward by the Department of Economic Development, will go to Tynwald in October.
Minister Allan Bell said: "This is another step forward for low-paid workers in the Isle of Man."
He added: "Even in difficult economic times we will continue to promote the welfare of those on the lower incomes."
