House servants, drivers, secretaries and low-ranking teachers and police officers are the least paid employees in Kenya each earning below KSh 20, 000.
A new wage report by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) has also established only 1.9 million Kenyans working formal sectors earn over KSh 50,000 monthly.
At least 964,943 workers earn between KSh 20,000 to KSh 29,000 while 749,344 appreciate incomes of between KSh 30,000 and KSh 49,999 per month.
Individuals in this category spend mostly on basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing, entertainment and education.
However, it is also projected that those earning above KSh 50,000 to KSh 99,999 are likely to form the largest bulk in the coming years. These include fresh graduates hoping to work in banking, manufacturing, telecommunications sectors and civil service and easily identify with luxury.
