Little hope for farm worker wage agreement
Farm worker wage negotiations are set to continue this week, but there is little hope an agreement can be reached soon, as farmers’ representatives say there is too much to be done.
Agri SA executive director Hans Van der Merwe said it is not possible to reach an agreement by the end of the week, as there is too much work that still needs to be done.
Farm workers are demanding to be paid a minimum of a R150 a day. Most of them earn between R69 and R75 a day.
