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’.

Wages are also so low that in some instances workers make more money from tips. Edward Webster, Attiyah Loonat, Debbie Budlender, Leilanie Williams and Mark Orkin investigate decent work in the hospitality sector in Gauteng Province in a recent research report whose snapshots are in this article.
