SA Laws Not to Blame for Increasing Unemployment

ILO says the labour market regulations in South Africa are not to blame for the country’s high unemployment

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) says that labour market regulations in South Africa are not to blame for the country’s high unemployment.

ILO Southern Africa director, Vic van Vuuren, identified education challenges, a skills mismatch, an inadequate focus on entrepreneurship and small business, as well as the economic slowdown, as the main contributing factors to unemployment.

"When we look at our labour laws and we analyse them and compare them to other best-practice countries, I don’t think we have a rigid labour market that is preventing youth employment or employment in general," explains van Vuuren.
