43: Economic Inequality & Pay
Prof Mehita Iqani in this episode tackles this bone of contention amongst many in academia with Prof Rasigan Maharaj, the founding Chief Director of the Institute for Economic Research on Innovation (IERI) in the Faculty of Economics and Finance at Tshwane University of Technology (TUT). Prof Maharaj says it is not enough to only discuss minimum wage, there should be discussions on what the maximum wage should be in South African Institutions of Higher Education.
Together they also explore questions of innovation, equality, accountability, pay scales, and socially engaged scholarship.
