The National minimum wage Bill has set out the minimum wage of R20 per hour which makes R3,500 a month. This excludes farmworkers and domestic workers. The law was passed by an overwhelming majority, gaining 202 votes.

Three amended labour bills were submitted before the National Assembly – the National Minimum Wage Bill, The Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Bill and The Labour Relations Amendment Bill.

It seems like South Africans did not take the news well…


Some of the officials however think that the government has made the right decision.
