15 Percent Pay Rise For Farm Workers

Farm workers have been awarded a 15 per cent wage increase.

This comes as a second supplementary review of Statutory Instrument 195 of 2018, which had guaranteed farm workers a 6,67 per cent increase in July, pegging the minimum wage at $80 and maximum wage at $160.

These salary adjustments are with effect from this month.

National Employment Council of Zimbabwe (NEC) has notified the Agriculture Industry of Zimbabwe of these developments.
