Business council dips into labour broking debate

The Black Business Council (BBC) says regulating rather than banning labour brokers would be a preferable solution to the situation.

The business formation, however, said labour brokers should provide dignity for workers.

“We need dignity for employed people. Uncivilised employment practices should have no place in our democracy,” it said.

On the soon to be implemented e-tolling system on Gauteng freeways, the BBC said while they agreed with the “user pay” principle, they believed the e-tolling should have occurred within an integrated public transport system.

The business formation also welcomed the announcement of lower than expected electricity tariff increases.

Ndaba Ntsele, the BBC president, will lead a business delegation to the Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa (BRICS) summit that takes place in India in two weeks’ time.

According to the BBC, it was invited by government to participate in the official programme in two significant areas, those of food security and information technology.

The BBC said it would soon meet with the Congress of South African Trade Unions, the South African Communist Party and the National Youth Development Agency to discuss a range of issues. — I-Net Bridge
