I have discussed the concept of danger pay on a few previous occasions. Basically, this term was mostly associated with soldiers who were required to work in very dangerous areas.
These days it can even include special types of insurance benefits against events like kidnapping for families whose occupations require them to relocate to areas where the risk of abduction is high. Whatever the package entails, in essence it refers to extra benefits or compensation for people who are risking their lives to work in dangerous places, amongst other things.
Many individuals find these benefits extremely attractive, but it’s crucially important that whoever considers them is aware of the associated dangers. In most cases, workers must be willing to pay with their lives in exchange for a few extra thousand rand per month.
