THE HOT BOX

Trade federation Cosatu plans to convene a special meeting of its central executive committee to deliberate on its support for the ANC ahead of this year’s local government elections.
The labour federation recently concluded a meeting of its committee which discussed challenges facing the ANC-led alliance that includes the South African Communist Party.
Cosatu general secretary Bheki Ntshalintshali says the alliance is facing a serious crisis of legitimacy and they are finding it hard to rally workers behind the governing party.
He says some of the challenges facing the ANC like internal divisions and failure to implement its policies from the 2017 Nasrec national conference, have left many workers feeling they were being asked to vote against their own interests.

National Treasury and the Public Enterprises Department will be the first two government departments to pilot zero-based budgeting this year in an effort to improve efficiency.
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni made the announcement yesterday during the budget presentation.
Zero-based budgeting is a process where funding is allocated based on programme efficiency and necessity rather than budget history.
Since June last year, Treasury has been reviewing government spending to improve efficiency.
More than 30 spending reviews across all functions have been conducted to understand service-delivery outcomes and how these might change under different scenarios. 
These reviews will be used to inform the development of zero-based budgeting.

This accounted for almost a third of total employment.
During 2013 and 2019, the formal sector accounted for 71.2% and 68.5% respectively, of a percentage of total employment, while the informal sector increased by 2.8 percentage points from 15.3% to 18.3%.

Males recorded an increase from 52.3% in 2013 to 56.2% in 2019. 
Female representation in informal employment was 47.7% in 2013 and 43.8% in 2019.
The report is based on secondary data analysis of Stats SA's Quarterly Labour Force Survey of the third quarter of 2013 and that of the third quarter of 2019 as well as the Survey of Employers and the Self-employed.
The majority of males were employed in semi-skilled occupations at 52.9% in 2013, increasing to 56% in 2019. In contrast,  about six out of 10 females in informal employment were in low-skilled occupations as compared to their male counterparts, recording 62.3% in 2013 and 61.3% in 2019.
High-skilled occupations comprises managers, professionals and technicians; semi-skilled occupations included clerks, sales and services, crafts and related trade, plant and machine operators; and low-skilled occupations comprises elementary and domestic work.
Nine in 10 people, 88.8% in 2013 and 90.7% in 2017, running informal businesses were black African people,
More than 60% of people running informal businesses did not have a matric.
The report said the majority of those who could not be absorbed in the formal economy due to lack of education got absorbed into the informal economy.
