Bagraim, Mr M to ask the Minister of Labour
Whether, with regard to minimum wage levels set for job categories falling under various bargaining councils and for various wage determinations, the Government is considering a minimum wage set below the current lowest wage determination?
The discussions around a national minimum wage are currently taking place at NEDLAC where social partners are negotiating the modalities of the national minimum wage. In addition, a number of research projects are currently underway to inform this debate. It would therefore be premature to speculate on the level or modalities of this proposed national minimum wage.
