Great unhappiness exists in the ANC government because white men are allegedly still holding the largest number of executive positions.
The ANC’s Minister of Labor, Thulas Nxesi, said this week that there are too many companies that are not pursuing government targets.
He says the companies that do not reach the targets should be punished, which could mean that the government will force them to achieve the set goals.
He says Section 53 of the Employment Equity Act will be promulgated to compel companies that do not meet the requirements because it has been established for more than 20 years that “democracy” has been established.
The businesses that are still successfully run with knowledgeable white men have no reason to dismiss such a person, said one expert.
