    Let's get the nation to work and awake government and the corporate sector away from "Day Dreaming".

    Posted by Moegsien Harris on August 31, 2015 at 15:34 1 Comment

    My conscience has been challenging my Heart for over 20 years into our democracy and repeatedly tell me that Affirmative Action (AA), Employment Equity (EE), Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) and Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BB-BEE) are are the latest "buzz" words for job reservation, Pluralism, segregation and Apartheid. It smacks as much like racism and oppression to me.
