ANC says the proposed job seekers grant will not replace youth wage subsidy

The African National Congress (ANC) says that a proposed job seekers grant to help unemployed young people find work will not replace the youth wage subsidy.

ANC head of policy, Jeff Radebe, points out that the proposal for the job seekers grant was submitted by the National Youth Development Agency and the African National Congress Youth League.

In the same vein, President Jacob Zuma, who says the job seekers grant will help young people while they actively look for employment, added that the grant will be also linked to the compulsory skills development programmes.
