WE WELCOME THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEW NATIONAL MINIMUM WAGE
The African National Congress (ANC) welcomes the implementation of the new national minimum wage, a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to promote economic fairness and uplift the livelihoods of all South Africans. This progressive measure reflects our commitment to ensuring fair wages for workers and reducing inequality gap.
The working class forms the backbone of South Africa’s economy, contributing tirelessly to its growth and development. We recognize the invaluable contributions of the working class and remains dedicated in its commitment to standing side by side with them.
Through various policies and initiatives, the ANC has always pursued to uplift the working class, ensuring access to decent wages, improved working conditions, and social protection. Initiatives such as the national minimum wage and efforts to address unemployment reflect the ANC’s commitment to creating a more equitable society where every worker can thrive. As South Africa continues its journey towards a more inclusive society, the ANC reaffirms its support for the working class.
