Finance Minister Tito Mboweni seems ready to challenge labour unions on the high cost of the public sector wage bill. Mboweni said in his mid-term budget speech in Parliament that the Government spends over R500bn on the wage bill which has more than tripled between 2006 and 2019. He said discussions needs to be undertaken with labour unions for a consensus on an intervention on the wage bill. - Linda van Tilburg
