Partial pay for partial work

Danya Levy at Stuff reports:

The Government also wants employers to be able to deduct the wages of workers who undertake partial strikes and the papers show new provisions which would allow them to be paid at less than the minimum wage.

Partial wages for partial strikes seems fair to me, just as you get no wages for a total strike.

If you don’t give employers the ability to do partial wages for a partial strike, then their likely response is to lock the employees out entirely – which I think is best avoided.
