Miriam Altman, the executive director of the Centre for Poverty, Employment and Growth at the Human Sciences Research Council, says youth unemployment is the heart of the problem, since 75 percent of the job losses experienced during the recession were people under the age of 34. Altman, in an article published in the Adcorp Employment Quarterly, proposes five measures to reduce unemployment. These are to significantly expand the Further Education and Training (FET) system, increase employment in lower, entry-level grades of the public service; extend the expanded public works programme; support small-scale agriculture; and introduce incentives for the matching of jobs with job seekers.
Altman says the Department of Higher Educations aims to expand FET enrolments by 2014, which could potentially generate 600 000 additional placements a year.
