Minimum Wages in Taxi Sector Adjusted

Department of Labour

Minimum wages in the taxi sector have been adjusted.

The labour department published the amendments to Sectoral Determination 11 in Government Gazette 41218 in terms of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act.

The minimum wages for drivers is now set at R3 413 26 per month, R787 73 per week and R16 41 daily.

Rank marshals will now get R2 728 45 per month, R629 68 per week and R13 11 daily.

A new boarding allowance of R372 08 is also set down.

The adjusted minimum wages kicked in on 1 October 2017.

Meanwhile, in a statement, the department has indicated that the Employment Equity Act is currently under discussion at Nedlac “ahead of amendments to link doing business with government to compliance with EE legislation.”

The proposed amendments will also seek to strengthen powers of the inspectorate.

The department pointed out that recent Director-General Reviews had found a total of 50 JSE Securities-listed companies, including the JSE, non-compliant with the act.
