Analysis of employment, real wage, and productivity trends in South Africa since 1994

Martin Wittenberg ()

ILO Working Papers from International Labour Organization

Abstract: South Africa’s transition to democracy in 1994 engendered expectations of rapid changes in racial and gender disparities in wages. Twenty years after the transition there are strong disagreements about whether there have been gains and how these have been distributed. In particular there are debates about whether wage increases have outstripped productivity increases.
