The South African Domestic Service and Allied Workers’ Union says while it welcomes the increase in wages, it simply is not enough.

As of Thursday, employees in urban areas who work a minimum of 27 hours a week will be paid a minimum of R2 422 per month and R12 49 for those who work hourly.

The union says it’s in talks with government to implement a R3 500 minimum wage.

Spokesperson, Myrtle Witbooi says unionised domestic workers are being exploited.
