Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa has‚ in his capacity as chair of the Committee of Principals of the National Economic Development Council (Nedlac)‚ appointed a seven-person panel to advise Nedlac on an appropriate level at which the national minimum wage should be set, reports The Times. The Nedlac Committee of Principals comprises representatives of government‚ labour‚ business and the community charged with‚ among others‚ determining the national minimum wage. ‘The appointment of the advisors takes place against the background of consensus among Nedlac social partners to introduce a national minimum wage as part of efforts to restore the dignity of the majority of South Africans‚ address the triple challenges of poverty‚ under-development and inequality‚ and reduce pay differentials while maximising job creation‚’ Presidency spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said.
