R5 profit for R50 trouble? No thanks!

17 June 2014, 09:13

Years ago a café owner chased me out of his café saying that for R5 potential profit he was not keen on the possible R50 damages.

This is exactly how employers feel right now and it is no wonder that unemployment has hit the levels they currently are at.

Zuma promised 5 million jobs a few years ago and what transpired from that? Absolutely nada unless you count the few he employed to build Nkandla with our money.

There will never be a quick fix to our unemployment challenge but it is time that the buck got stopped somewhere and not when but yesterday.

Curb the Unions for one; if they call for a strike let them pay their members 50% of their wages while on strike. Why should the Union bosses (read scam artists) benefit at the expense of the real workers? Oh wait, that’s the norm in Africa so scrap that idea.

Streamline creating a SMME business. Even before that takes off it is doomed by bureaucratic red tape. Next!

Scrap BEE. The election is over guys so there is no more need to “smoke & mirror” the masses. Do what is right and drop this nonsense. Create employment and not disemployment.

Marie Antoinette said, allegedly, “Let them eat cake”. Zuma might as well, and probably is, saying “Let them eat grass”. Does he really care with his state of the art homestead? Not a damn.

Formal employment outside of the government sector is about to become as rare as our rhinos and it is no wonder when we have a leading party not leading the way forward.

Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika because no one else will.
