Sizwe Mchunu, MPP
Leader of the DA in KwaZulu-Natal
A PICKET by COSATU KZN, at the provincial office of the Democratic Alliance, is no more than a desperate attempt to detract from the real issue – the chance for thousands of unemployed South Africans to find work through the DA’s proposed Youth Wage Subsidy.
Today, the Democratic Alliance is marching to COSATU House in Johannesburg to protest against the trade federation’s continued opposition to the Youth Wage Subsidy – a policy which has the potential to create more than 400 000 jobs. Today, COSATU KZN is picketing in protest against this initiative. The DA in KwaZulu-Natal is not threatened by COSATU. Their actions merely serve to confirm our view that the wellbeing of thousands of South Africans is not the trade federation’s top priority.
