Is it allowed to pay different remuneration to people with different skin colour?

If people are doing the same work for the same employer but are subject to different remuneration solely because of their skin colour, then this is discrimination. Such activity is unacceptable.

However, if different remuneration is imposed on people because of the different nature of their work, this is not discrimination. In this case, the reason for the different remuneration is that the nature of the work is different, not the skin colour of the employee.

Therefore, people who do the same job in the same position must receive the same remuneration, regardless of the skin colour of the employees. However, employees with different jobs may be paid different remuneration.
