13 Jun #YouthMonth: Young Game Changers
Earlier last year, Statistics South Africa released the latest results of its Quarterly Labour Force Survey for the first quarter of 2017, which showed that, apart from the overall unemployment rate reaching a 13 year high of 27,7%, the youth (ages 15 – 34 years) unemployment rate also increased to 38,6%. The sharp increase in unemployment is testament to the lack of start-up skills in the country, and calls for an even more focused approach to building an entrepreneurial ethos – from grassroots level. In SA today we have seen a number of young people going in the path of wanting to start their own businesses. Opting for entrepreneurship as a career choice. These young people have become game changers and trendsetters. To talk to us about their businesses we had these powerful young people in-studio today; Vuki Dlamini, Tshepo Moses, Tumi Malie and Blaine Joseph.
