VAAL TRIANGLE - The South African Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) is set to host a summit to discuss the rising unemployment and poverty in the country. The federation says the summit, dubbed the Working Class Summit, is a response to its campaign against the national minimum wage. The National Assembly (NA) passed the National Minimum Wage Bill at the end of May 2018. The national minimum wage is R20 for each regular hour worked. Saftu’s Patrick Craven says the government doesn’t seem able to solve the problems of unemployment and poverty.
