Moteka, Mr PG to ask the Minister of Labour
Has her department engaged the Minister of Health and the Minister of Social Development about establishing a minimum wage for community care givers and community health workers?
Government was represented in all the engagements towards establishing the modalities of a national minimum wage and this by extension included all departments.
The intended coverage of the National Minimum Wage of R20 per hour is intended for all workers in South Africa with the exception of Farm, Forestry, Domestic and Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) workers.
If Community health workers/ community caregivers are not under the EPWP programme, then they are covered.
