NGOs to March for Better Wages

Social welfare bodies countrywide are set to march, in protest against discrepancies in salaries between the state and NGOs next month

Social welfare bodies are to march countrywide to the Gauteng Department of Social Services to protest against discrepancies in salaries between the state and NGOs next month.

Jackie Loffell of the Gauteng Welfare, Social Service and Development Forum, which represents NGOs in the province, points out that on average, social service workers employed by NGOs earn 37 percent less than their counterparts in government departments because of inadequate state subsidies to NGOs.

“We want financing that will enable NGOs in all categories and on all levels to earn the same salaries as their colleagues in government, and that will put an end to the crippling turnover of staff in the sector.,” explains Loffell.
