WINDHOEK: The Wages Commission on Domestic Workers is embarking on its third round of public meetings to garner input from employers, employees, civil societies, trade unions and all interested parties.
The meetings are being held in order to investigate domestic workers’ conditions of employment and discuss a minimum wage for the workers and are aimed at eventually coming up with terms and conditions of employment, as well as a minimum wage, for domestic workers.
Conducted country-wide, the hearings create a platform for domestic workers, employers, interested individuals, groups, organisations and the public at large to express their opinions and give input on the plight of domestic workers.
On 03 September, the commission will be at the Lutheran Church Hall in Luderitz’s Benguela residential area, while on 05 September, it will be in Keetmanshoop, at the WK Rover Hall in Tseiblaagte.
On 06 September, the commission moves on to Mariental, where a meeting will be held at the Aimablaagte Community Hall.
The next day, the commission will be in Rehoboth, where a meeting is set to take place at the Hermanus Van Wyk Memorial Hall.
