South Africa’s labour market remains largely unchanged, with the Commission for Employment Equity (CEE) noting that there was little transformation in terms of race and gender recently.
This is despite many employers having committed to self-regulate on the matter.
The latest CEE report, which covers the years 2022 to 2023, shows that the next generation entering the labour market will still have to battle the issue of inequality.
CEE chairperson, Tabea Kabinde handed over the report to Labour and Employment Minister Thulas Nxesi.
The report found that white people continue to dominate top management positions at 62.9%, followed by 16.9% black people, 11.2% Indians, 6.1% coloured people and 3% foreign nationals.
And males continue to occupy top-level positions. This figure stands at 73.5%.
