Labour - Numsa marches against youth unemployment

In today's show, we spoke to Vuyo Lufele – National Union of Metalworkers Regional Secretary. Yesterday the union embarked on a national strike to highlight the issue of youth unemployment. According to the union, after Greece and Spain, South Africa has the third highest unemployment rate in the world for people between the ages of 15 to 24. It further states that about 71% of all unemployed people in South Africa are between the ages 15-29. Most of them are women; the majority of which have never had a job in their lives.
