South Africa has been plagued for several decades by a crisis of high unemployment with the numbers of unemployed ever increasing. This problem is particularly acute amongst black working class youth who are also unable to afford to pay for higher education. As most of us would know, high unemployment leads to increased poverty and inequality, with all the social ills like crime and violence associated with it. This episode of Workers on Wednesday assesses SA’s unemployment situation and looks at possible solutions in what is referred to as “The Green Economy”.
