'If we do not support the current jobs in the sector now, there will be nothing to monitor'

The Covid-19 People’s Coalition — Early Childhood Development (ECD) stream is calling for the department of social development (DSD) to redirect funds to support and sustain long-term jobs that now exist in the sector.

In a statement speaking to this matter, the coalition has highlighted their disappointment in the departments decision to direct R 1.3 Billion Economic Stimulus for Youth Compliance Monitors as opposed to supporting and sustaining the jobs that face the risk of being lost.
