SA Gov does not know how to legislate tax

COSATU has always opposed the ETI, formerly known as the youth wage subsidy, because it was never going to provide any solution to the very real problem of high youth unemployment, but line the pockets of businesses for employing workers who in many cases they would have employed even without the subsidy.

It can be claimed for newly hired workers aged 18-29 earning less than R6 000 a month. But it imposes no conditions for the employers to train those workers, no guarantee that they will be retained after the tax rebate expires and nothing to stop employers retrenching an equal number of older workers.
