Thanks for Pushing IFP Jobs Policy in Gauteng, Premier Lesufi

Oct 5, 2023 | Press Releases

The IFP in Gauteng warmly welcomes Premier Panyaza Lesufi’s recent announcement regarding the reservation of jobs for South Africans.

This move aligns with our longstanding IFP policy, which we passionately advocated for through a Private Members’ Bill in Parliament, putting the interests of South Africans first.

We believe that prioritising employment opportunities for our citizens is not only a crucial step towards bolstering our local workforce but also a significant stride towards strengthening our nation’s economic stability.

Employment opportunities for South Africans in the province of Gauteng are of paramount importance for several reasons.

As we head into the 2024 National and Provincial Elections, we will continue to put South Africans first.

A robust workforce is the backbone of any thriving economy. Creating job opportunities in Gauteng stimulates economic growth by increasing consumer spending, tax revenue, and overall productivity.

Gainful employment is a potent tool for poverty reduction. When more South Africans in Gauteng have access to jobs, they can provide for their families, meet basic needs, and break free from the cycle of poverty.

High levels of unemployment can lead to social unrest and instability. By offering employment opportunities, Gauteng can promote social cohesion, reduce crime rates, and foster a more harmonious society.

The IFP believes that jobs provide a platform for skills development and career advancement. When South Africans in Gauteng have access to meaningful work, they can acquire new skills, improve existing ones, and contribute to the provinces competitiveness.

The IFP in Gauteng will continue to advocate for more employment opportunities for South Africans because jobs are not just a matter of economic significance but also a crucial pillar of social progress and stability. By prioritising job creation, the province can unlock its full potential and contribute to a brighter future for its residents and the nation as a whole.
