Abstract: Some methods used to analysis between government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria were considered. Descriptive Statistics, The Ordinary Least Square technique; Correlation Analysis tools were employed to ascertain the significant difference between government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria. Data were collected for period 1974 – 2000.Our results shows that year of review is negatively and significant on government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria. Consumer Price Index is negatively and significant on government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria. Also, there is a perfect negative association on year of review between real minimum wage on government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria and it is significant, with a perfect positive association year of review between consumer price index on government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria and it is significant and there is a negative moderate association on real minimum wage between consumer price index on government wage policy on minimum wage saga in Nigeria and it is significant.
