EFF recommends 60% of farm, retail, hospitality employees be South Africans
Following a Central Command Team meeting, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) are holding a press briefing to address a number of issues on Monday.
In the presser, party leader Julius Malema also addressed the upcoming 2021 local government elections.
Decisive action must be taken against all companies that have done wrong, and companies that complied to the process and price regulations must be paid for the services they have provided, he said. He called upon all employers "inclusive of farms, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, the hospitality businesses and the entire private sector to ensure that a minimum of 60% of their employees are South Africans".
