The criteria being used in appointing school assistant teachers

With the initiative formed by the Presidential youth employment intervention (PYIE) is it fair to South Africans teachers who are not employed at the moment. The innitiave is a good start though the principle within it needs thorough and proper planning. It should go hand in hand with what our youth have in terms of qualifications .This would give our unemployed sisters and brothers to get knowledge on the career paths they choose.

Listen: Fake Work Permit Holder To Face The Music Along With His Boss

The truck drivers allegations have proven to be correct without being tried and tested by the courts as the constitution demands,the truck drivers organization ATDF has been fighting the employees in the trucking industry for hiring the foreign nationals and sidelining the south africans,some of these foreign nationals had no proper documentation or atleast are holding the fraudulently obtained ones or the fake ones.Truck drivers demands that the driving jobs should be limited and reserved for the south africans only.There are many south africans who are holding the valid driving documents,this population group has spent their last pennies to pay for the drivers documents,unfortunately,some of the employees are conspiring and backstabbing the poor south africans by employing the foreigners in the jobs that the south africans could do.One foreign truck driver ran out of luck as he come across the honest road police,the police inspected the permit of the driver and found out that it was fake.The driver was arrested right on the spot.The road police had also revealed that the employer is also going to be charged.The south african labour laws are very clear when it comes to the employment of the foreigners,however,some of the companies continues to tamper with those laws they very well know.It seems like there's some exploitative benefits the employers are enjoy through employing the foreigners.The fact that some of the south african employers are hiring more foreign nationals than the locals was never an empty call,but the people who normally speaks against the south africans when they complain about the employment of foreigners,have successfully managed to silence the poor and jobless masses,thus giving the parasitic employers more powers to continue sidelining the locals.Very simple and soft skills jobs are now occupied by the foreigners,the petrol attendants,the chefs and servers in the restaurants and the security jobs are not necessarily scarce skills jobs.More than 70 percent of south african youth is unemployed,it does make sense for the south Africans to question the employment of the foreigners in such simple jobs.
