Effective 1 March 2024: New National Minimum Wage

South African money

The National Minimum Wage (NMW) for each 'ordinary hour worked' has been increased from 1 March 2024 by 8,5% from R25,42 to R27,58.

Domestic Workers: Assuming a work month of 21 days x 8 hours per day, R27,58 per hour equates to R220,64 per day or R4 633,44 per month. The Living Wage Calculator will help you check whether or not you are actually paying your domestic worker enough to cover a household’s 'minimal need' (adjust the 'Assumptions' in the calculator to ensure that the figures used are up to date).
