Confirmation of New Minimum Forestry Wages


New minimum forestry wages are being based on a 9 hour day. The original Gazette determining the new minimum wages for forestry workers (R 2 606.78) did not specifically state that the minimum wage was based on a daily 9 hour day (45 hours per week).  We have now got clarity from DoL that the daily wage is based on a 9 hour day.  The daily, weekly and monthly wage are indicative rates based on a 9 hour day.
