JOHANNESBURG - Higher Education and Training Minister Naledi Pandor has urged black people and women to take a stand against discriminatory pays in their workplaces.
A report she released in Pretoria on Tuesday shows that women and black people are, on average, paid less than their white colleagues.
A white person without the matric certificate was on average paid double than a black person with matric. While a white person without matric would earn R7 440, a black person would be paid R3 872.
A white person with matric would be paid R10 116, while a black person without matric would get R2 373.
A black person with a degree was likely to be paid R13 3539 monthly, while their white counterpart would get R19 700.
