Gracious Shabangu slammed the labour brokers of calling the youth to submit their CVs and identity documents for shutdowns, knowing very well they already have people for those positions.
“This thing of shutdown is not assisting our young people, but accelerate their sufferings because it create jobs for only few days per year.
“Young people only get employed for two weeks and go back and wait for the following year’s shutdown,” said Shabangu speaking on behalf of the African National Youth League (ANCYL).
He also raised a red flag on companies who withhold identity documents for the period of shutdown to prevent them from applying for other jobs.
Shabangu said the only solution to the problem, is for Sasol to create permanent jobs for the youth, not shutdowns.
