Kit Group supplies uniforms for Africa (with personality and soul, nogal!)

Employers often compel workers to wear uniforms or corporate clothing.

Work uniforms are common for blue collar workers and cleaners, and those in industries such as retail, banks, security, healthcare, airlines, and hospitality.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) recently made headlines by insisting its MPs wear overalls and gumboots as parliamentary work uniform.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Joe Pereira, founder and Chairman of the Kit Group, Southern Africa’s leading manufacturer and supplier of uniform and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Scroll down for quotes from the audio below.
