The minimum wage for employees who did not benefit from the implementation of the National Minimum Wage on 1 January 2019, has been increased with effect from 2 August 2019.
Effect of National Minimum Wage (NMW)
There are several categories of workers who were earning below R20 per hour when the NMW came into effect on 1 January 2019. Employers had to increase their minimum wages to R20 per hour. The other minima (above R20 per hour) have remained unchanged until now.
Those who did not benefit from the implementation of the National Minimum Wage in January will be benefiting now. The minimum wage for these employees has now been increased by 4,53% from the date of publication in the Government Gazette on 2 August 2019.
