Minimum wages

South Africa Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) said it is outraged and disgusted - but not surprised - after the country set its first-ever minimum wage.

The bill sets the wage at a minimum of 20 rand ($1.59; £1.20) an hour, which, for a 40-hour week, sets the wage at about $278 per month. The union said parliament missed an opportunity to free workers from the oppressive wage gap.
