As you might have heard or noticed, the unemployment rate in South Africa has climbed to record highs. According to Stats SA the official unemployment rate increased to 34,4% in the second quarter of 2021- the highest since the start of the survey in 2008. The number of discouraged job-seekers increased by 6.3%. Youth aged 15-24 years and 25-34 years recorded the highest unemployment rates of 64,4% and 42,9% respectively. This is a crises. Not only does it compromise the lives of young and capable people but it threatens their future and that of the country at large. Waiting for an employment opportunity is starting to look like a bad idea especially if you have a business idea. By doing your own thing, you could beat two birds with one stone -create employment for yourself and employ others. You could play your part in the fight against poverty and improve the socio-economic status of this country. Now, you must be wondering how?
