Black First Land First rejects the national minimum wage bill signed by Cyril Ramaphosa, which sets the minimum wage at R3 700 per month. This amounts to nothing more than slave wages.
Workers in Marikana died at the hands of Ramaphosa’s call for “concomitant action”, in their fight to realise a mininum wage of R12 500. Ramaphosa killed the workers in Marikana and has shown no remorse. Instead he has now spat on the memory of Mambush and others.
BLF rejects the slave wage and maintains the call for a minimum wage of R12 500.
