Call to Link Youth Wage Subsidy to Training and Skills

FEDUSA says that the government should link its proposed youth wage subsidy to training and skills programmes to prevent exploitation and increase young people's chances of finding work

Trade Union, Federated Union of South Africa (FEDUSA) says that the government should link its proposed youth wage subsidy to training and skills programmes to prevent exploitation and increase young people's chances of finding work.

FEDUSA secretary-general, Krister Janse van Rensburg, points out that South African schools operate in a two-tier system - some performed at international standards, and others just scraped pupils through, with around 2.4 million youths not working, training or studying.

As the country marked Youth Day, van Rensburg says the National Planning Commission recently noted that the quality of education for most black pupils is still substandard and rising levels of unemployment were becoming a concern.
