IFP NEC to Outline its Plans to Get South Africa Working

07 April 2014.

  

 

If the last election was the 'toilet election', as analysts suggested when political parties had to defend their record on delivering sanitation services, 2014 must surely be the 'employment election', because our country's economy and workforce are in big trouble.

 

Where once we struggled against Apartheid, now the vast majority of South Africans seem to just struggle. Frustration is rising, protests are flaring and street justice is burgeoning.

 

Today, many young South Africans believe that they will never be gainfully employed. The flowery Struggle rhetoric and apparent gains of the past 20 years have not helped millions of South Africans to put food on the table.

 

An IFP government would balance job creation and job protection, by revising labour laws to allow for more flexibility. We believe that would generate investment, new jobs and growth.

 

During a press briefing on Wednesday, the IFP NEC will unpack its manifesto which has policies to get South Africa working.
