Johannesburg – Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi has announced a new minimum wage for South Africa.
On Monday, the minister announced that the national minimum wage has been increased to R23.19 for an ordinary hour for work.
The increase of 6.9% will come into effect on March 1. This would raise the salary of a domestic worker to R23 per hour from R19.09 in 2021.
This adjustment comes after a recent proposal by the National Minimum Wage Commission to increase domestic worker salaries to 100% of the National Minimum Wage.
