Working with labour, business and communities, we will protect existing jobs, create many new jobs and ensure that all workers can earn a decent living.

Create an extra 275,000 jobs a year by boosting local demand for goods, investing more in mining, manufacturing and agriculture and expanding export markets.

Improve nearly 6 million lives with the National Minimum Wage and ensure legislation is in place to implement the Constitutional Courtís ruling on labour brokers.

Increase internship and training opportunities.

Remove work experience for the employment of young people at entry level, especially in the public service, and in-source support services back into the public sector.

Work with partners to train workers in new technologies and unleash their talent and creativity.

Raise R1,2 trillion in new investments over 4 years as part of our plan to grow the economy and create jobs.

Build a social compact on infrastructure investment with business and organised labour to finance key economic and social infrastructure projects.

Fast-track and unblock the delivery of major projects through an improved Presidential Infrastructure Co-ordinating Commission.
