The African National Congress (ANC) accuses the Democratic Alliance led provincial government of the Western Cape for failing the exploited wine farms workers, following a Human Rights Watch (HRW) report.
The report ‘Ripe with Abuse: Human Rights Conditions in South Africa’s Fruit and Wine Industries’, which revealed that the farm workers are exploited, abused and underpaid by their employers in that province.
ANC provincial leader, Marius Fransman, states that the national government needs to intervene the province’s wine and fruit industry.
Fransman continues to say that, “…the province, with such a wealthy and renowned wine and fruit export industry, has among the lowest wages in the country."
