Anele reacted with disappointment saying people should accept if they cannot afford helpers.

"Hayi I don't know, who is this 33-year-old that must earn R2500 a month. We have to come to terms with the fact that we can’t afford full-time nannies. This is evil."

How should the domestic workers salary be calculated?

Teboho Thejane from the Department Of Labour told Briefly News that employers should look to determine the wage according to the value of the job.

"Employers need to evaluate the value of the job for you to determine the wages as NMW (national minimum wage) is not a living wage."

According to the Department of Labour's website, every domestic worker must be paid no less than R25.42 per hour.

So if a worker works for eight to nine hours they should earn from R4 000 to R4 900 every month.

Should they be paid less than that, they can make their way to CCMA or lodge a complaint at the Department of Labour.

Mzansi shares their thoughts on Anele's sentiments

Anele's opinion sparked a massive debate among social media users, with some justifying this salary offer and others saying it is illegal.

@bonnyskosana said:

"That’s all she can afford. The child is 8 years also."

@NogoboN said:

"Let’s say I pay her R5000, then I deduct R1 500 for rent, water and electricity and R1 000 for food. Will that be fair? We also need to check her responsibilities: is she gonna use a washing machine or hand wash? Cleaning can not be too much for only her and the daughter."

@Ziggy_Diver1 said:

"So where must our Police officers, nurses and teachers get nannies from… you earn hundreds of thousands monthly, and speaking from that standpoint. People are working late shifts, and surely no one wants to underpay a person that looks after their kids, but it’s a sad reality."

@MissDiko said:

"I say this all the time, I don't have a helper because I can't afford one. Nothing worse than underpaying someone for labour."
