Rainy Days Coming For Foreigners In South Africa

Most South Africans have long complained about foreigners taking away their jobs. This was often dismissed by saying, foreigners come to South Africa and create their own jobs, and also by telling South Africans that they are lazy and wouldn't do half of the jobs that foreigners do in this country. When foreigners have businesses in South Africa, they don't pay any tax. 


The Minister of Home Affairs, Aaron Motsoaledi has come out to say that are processes on the way that will come up with proposed laws that are going to reduce the number of foreigners employed by the South African Industries.

The Minister has said that they will do this with the assistance and advice from global institutions like the International Labour Organisation.

The Minister was responding to Inkatha Freedom Party MP Liezl van der Merwe during a Ministerial Peace and Security Cluster oral reply session in the National Assembly.

Motsoaledi says an Inter-Ministerial Task team has seeked for advice from the International Labour Organisation to assist in providing a Bill that will bring clarity as to the number of foreign nationals that can be hired by the Industry. He says the reason for seeking advice is the fact that South Africa has a constitution that is open to a number of things. By doing so they are avoiding being found on the wrong side of the law. 

South Africa has labour laws, and there are a number of companies that prefer employing employees, so they could run away from doing things by the book. They know foreign nationals will not tell them about laws even when they are overworking them.
