Second Transition?


THE ANC NEEDS TO INTENSIFY THE ORIGINAL, NOT SECOND TRANSITION:

JUNE 2012

1.      Perhaps depth should be provided to the ongoing discussions on the character and nature of what the ANC discussion document says is the second transition, a perspective document which is meant to be the Strategy & Tactics of the ANC. In trying to summarise what constitutes the organisational, political and ideological tasks of the progressive forces of change in South Africa 18 years since democratic breakthrough, the ANC released a draft document, which dismally failed to do so. Here we deal with this question in great detail and context in order to avoid misinterpretations of what is to be done.

Wage Subsidy or Not?


SHOULD EMPLOYMENT OF YOUTH BE WAGE-SUBSIDIZED?

FLOYD SHIVAMBU

The recently released Labour Force Survey by Statistics South Africa (Stats-SA) illustrates that the unemployment crisis in South Africa is deepening, with no foreseeable hope to address this crisis with sustainable mechanisms and interventions. This crisis will never be addressed as long as government leaders continue to turn a blind eye on what workers and the youth say should be alternate sustainable solution to the crisis of unemployment and poverty in South Africa.
