None of South Africa’s public office bearers should get salary hikes this year, the Independent Commission for the Remuneration of Public Office Bearers found in its latest set of recommendations. This, Business Insider reports, after the commission recommended last year that government’s top earners – those earning more than R1.5 million – should get 3% increases. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa threw out that recommendation, and ruled that the officials shouldn’t get a pay hike at all. The commission also, this year, recommended a pay freeze for all other public office bearers – including those who earn less than R1.5 million after they last year received increases of between 2.8% and 5.5%.
