Numsa at it again

18 March 2014, 12:01
I read with utter disbelief about the findings of the Numsa report. The report am referring to is that which was done to address the effects of unemployment in South Africa. What concerns me the most is that the figures were engineered to further or settle some scores. Let me put it out to you...

The study was performed on the youth ranging with an age range of 15-29years. Before I start with what really bothers me, wasn't it them (NUMSA) under COSATU wing who were opposed to the implementation of NDP? Their argument was simply that their cash injectors at the factories will have no where to go given their age, health et al.

They rallied behind the ideals of the ANC which are fundamentally to put Education first. Given those two scenarios, they went on to do a study on those who are supposed to be in school, I mean learners who are still three (3) years away before completing matric. I found it utterly disgusting and as a way of promoting what I call cheap labour.

How do you think that a fifteen or a sixteen year old will get a decent job? Are they saying that these kids must leave school and fall in the hands of cheap labour? They are against the ANC for failing to create jobs they promised when the giggling cassanova of Nkandla rose above the might of the law.

They found the figure to be at a staggering 70%+ and puts SA at 3rd place world wide. I struggled to come to terms that if the percentage is at that stage and accomodating the number of learners at school in the 15-19 region, I presume that we are in a great position in terms of unemployment rate. Numsa fails to address important issues like putting the interests of those who fill their coffers and instead face the other way. Numsa and other unions are supposed to be active at the workplaces and enforcing the employers to transfer skills and equip their current employees with all thats required to move forward.

That, I believe will actually open up ways for self-sustinance. Most of the employees might even go private and hire and transfer skill even further. They should thus ensure that their researches are performed by people with clear mind of what they are doing. One should frown upon the current research and should thus be scrapped and the study instead be on the transfer of skill transfer rate and independence of employees at the industry. That will thus give them clear indication on possible available job openings.
