“Workers on Wednesday” - Topic: The State of Public Healthcare and Workers?

In last week’s show we looked at the state of the working class and its prospects of survival during the current period. In this week show we take a look at the state of public healthcare and how it affects working class people. For several years many of us have lamented the state of public healthcare. Millions of South Africans who rely on state healthcare facilities like clinics and hospitals often complain about the long waiting time and poor treatment that they receive.
