DA vs Cosatu. Whose interests are being protected?

17 May 2012, 10:17
I'm trying to see how this is not a class battle. One of the comments mentioned that the same class is fighting. The Older workers and the youth...True..who are the people influencing this fight? The Rich Upper Class (Nehawu, Cosatu and to some extent the DA elites).

Cosatu is protecting its Interest: On the other hand the DA is also protecting its interest (POLITICAL POINTS). Party funding for the DA here is also important and it might have influenced the March. I am sure BUSINESSES are behind the whole Idea of the WAGE SUBSIDIES.

The DA is funded by these Businesses (we will never know their names). I know I know: The DA in this case is fighting for the Unemployed...
Why
1 They want to see the youth working
2 They want to gain Political points from the Youth and other sympathetic South Africans
3 The party has to run election campaigns and they are supper expensive; Private Companies secretly fund them (So the DA its-self is protecting its own interest).

The people being played here its us the Proletariat. The YOUTH WAGE SUBSIDY is a good idea. YES.... for WHO? the YOUTH.... if its implemented who tends to lose? Still the older proletariat who wont be proffered by employers... Now you see a Fight between the working Class and the unemployed youth.

Obviously in this case the BAD-GUY is Cosatu which is preventing the ANC led government to proceed with this policy. But lets ask ourselves; Is COSATU protecting their own interest alone?
