SA Warned Against Job Seekers Grant

Job seeker’s grant cannot substitute for measures that make it easier for businesses to create jobs, according to a Business Day editorial

According to an editorial on the Business Day website, job seeker’s grant cannot substitute for measures that make it easier for businesses to create jobs, or replace improving skills and education or labour market reforms as policy.

It says it the proposed youth wage subsidy is to be swept aside and replaced with a job seeker’s grant, it will be a tragedy for business, the unemployed and the fiscus.

It further argues that ‘another grant’ will not solve the problem of unemployment, and it will run a real risk of pushing state expenditure up to an unsustainable level.
