madein china

03 May 2016, 07:48  - Karishma.Rampersadh

IT comes as no surprise that 58 549 workers are going to lose their jobs this year.

I recently purchased two very basic items — a simple sun hat and an equally basic mosquito net. Getting home, I was shocked to find that both were made in China.

It would seem that Cosatu is determined to drive costs up, and their numbers down, so that even the most simple items can be imported more cheaply from overseas.

According to chief economist Mike Schussler, South Africa will soon have 10 million unemployed workers.

Just what is the ANC up to? Is this an election ploy that’s gone horribly wrong, or has Cosatu become a rogue element totally beyond the control of Luthuli House?
