Johannesburg - The minimum wage for domestic workers will increase from December but not by much, the labour department said on Monday.

The new increases in large cities would differ from those in small towns, said spokesperson Page Boikanyano.

In large cities, the rate for domestics workers who worked less than 27 hours per week would rise from R9.85 an hour to R10.48; from R165.94 per week to R285.62: and from R1 152.32 per month to R1 237.60.

The rate of those who worked more than 27 hours per week would go up from R8.34 an hour to R8.95; from R375.19 per week to R402.96; and from R1 625.70 per month to R1 746.

In small towns, those who worked more than 27 hours per week should receive the new rates of R7.65 per hour, R344.30 per week, and R1 491.86 per month.

Those who worked less than 27 hours should get the new rate of R9.03 per hour, R243.83 per week and R1 056.35 per month.

The increases were effective from December 1.

Boikanyano said spot inspections would be carried out to ensure compliance.
