Why do most workers in South Africa, earn more than others?
Every year, out of the 58.8 M people in South Africa, the South African job industry recruits professionals from different career backgrounds, to work in various sectors like management, engineering, medicine, finance, accounting, etc, in addition to the 9.1M people who are already employed.
And while most of these job sectors do well to make sure that employees get the most of their jobs in terms of job retention, training, a conducive work area, and productivity, not all South African workers can agree to have the best working experience at their respective companies due to the huge pay gap among workers in various sectors.
Unfair as it may sound, South African workers in different industries do earn more than workers in other industries or even earn more than their colleagues who are working in the same industry as them. It is a case of an engineer in a company, earning more than his colleague who is also in that company, or someone in the management industry earning more than someone in marketing.
