Structural Change & Patterns of Inequality in the SA Labour Market


When you watch TV stations and read media reports do you often wonder about the accuracy of the information?

Why is it that there is no growth post-apartheid? Why aren’t we improving job availability in the labour market? Why does inequality seem to be growing?

What are the effects of unions, temporary employment services (TES), and the employment tax incentive (ETI)?

Now we are about to implement a National Minimum Wage – will that make a difference – or solve the problem?

This very interesting paper by Haroon Bhorat and Safia Khan from the UCT Development Policy Research Unit provides a recent evaluation.
