21 Nov Workers on Wednesday: The Matric Class of 2018 – Any job prospects in 2019?

Every year nearly 700000 high school students write the Matric examination in South Africa. In recent years about 70% of them pass annually. Only 18% of matriculants manage to access tertiary education. That means that over 500000 matriculants become part of South Africa’s labour market annually while at the same time over 40% of the adult working population is unemployed and the economy is in recession and shedding jobs.

GUESTS: Noncedo Madubedube & Professor Rasigan Maharaj
