    Labour on taxi workers wage increase

    Wage hike for taxi workers

    20 June 2008

    As from 1 July 2008, workers within the taxi industry sector can expect an increase in minimum wages.

    Drivers and administration staff will receive a minimum wage of R 1740,53 per month if they work 48 hours per week, while Rank Marshals will get a minimum wage of R 1392,42.

    Other workers in the industry who are not mentioned elsewhere will get hikes of R1218,38. These increases were based on the May CPIX which was 10,1% at the time plus two percent.

    The boarding allowance will also be increased by CPIX and will therefore increase from R200 to R220 per night.

    I'm always amazed by this one. A taxi driver needs a PDP, and look at that minimum rate.

    The lowest rate for a driver in terms of the collective agreement in the Electrical Contracting industry is R16.48 per hour (at least once the new agreement is promulgated). For any contractor based anywhere near a city it's significantly higher, but let's stick to the lowest for this example. That translates to about R2855.65 per month on a 40 hour week. And you don't need a PDP.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
