Dear friend of the FMF
This week’s feature article describes a potential solution to South Africa’s mass unemployment problem. This simple, low-cost proposal, seeks to put the decision-making power squarely in the hands of unemployed people who cannot find jobs because of the barriers to entry into the labour market under the current labour dispensation. Laws designed to provide a high level of job security for those who have jobs form formidable barriers that prevent the unemployed from accessing jobs. The clarion call of the article is: Just Let Them Work!
Job Seekers Exemption Certificates: Just Let Me Work! – EUSTACE DAVIE
Government should help the jobless to help themselves by removing the obstacles that prevent them from selling their labour at the best price and under the best conditions they can find. Putting the solution squarely in their hands is the only way to rapidly reduce South Africa’s mass unemployment. Just Let Me Work!
