Lack of Opportunities Blamed for Unemployment

Radebe, says while unemployment in SA is exacerbated by a lack of appropriate skills‚ it is also compounded by the shortage of suitable post-school education opportunities

Minister in the Presidency, Jeff Radebe, says while unemployment in South Africa is exacerbated by a lack of appropriate skills‚ it is also compounded by the shortage of suitable post-school education opportunities.
 
Speaking on the occasion of the release of the government’s Development Indicators 2014 report, Radebe pointed out that the indicators reflect that one in four working age adults actively seeking employment remained unemployed during the period under review.
 
He added that reducing South Africa’s high levels of unemployment require the economy to be on a labour-absorbing growth path‚ as well as the development of entrepreneurship among the country’s youth‚ in terms of interest‚ skills and creation of opportunities.
