Minimum wages for farm workers are lower than those recommended by the Department of Labour’s sectoral determinations and in some instances workers are given food by employers to supplement their meagre earnings. Where they are not given food but have access, like from the fields, some workers take food home, write Edward Webster, Mbuso Nkosi, Debbie Budlender, Lelanie Williams and Mark Orkin in a study titled: ‘You entered through that gate and you will leave through that gate: the decent work deficit for Gauteng’s farm workers’.
