R18 an hour is the minimum wage for forestry workers.

The implementation of the National Minimum Wage became effective from 1 January 2019.  In terms of forestry (and agricultural) workers, the applicable wage is R18 per hour.

This represents a 9.7% increase on the sectoral minimum wage of R16.25 per hour that has been in effect since March 2018.

The NMW for forestry and agricultural workers will remain at R18 per hour until 31 December 2019. The NMW for forestry and agricultural workers that will come into effect from 1 January 2020 will be determined by the National Minimum Wage Commission.
