BEE IN ITSELF IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, UNJUST AND HAS NO PLACE IN A DEMOCRATIC COUNTY. OUR BILL OF RIGHTS STATES THAT NO PRIVATE INSTITUTE OR THE GOVERNMENT HAS THE RIGHT TO Discriminate AGAINST ANYONE BASE ON THEIR SKIN COLOR, SEX, RELIGION AND SO ON. YET THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO DO JUST THAT, THEY WANT TO USE Discrimination to FIX THE SO CALLED Discrimination of the past. WHAT HOGWASH. THE MINORITY GROUPS IN THIS COUNTY IS ALREADY STRUGGLING TO FIND WORK BECAUSE OF BEEEE CRAP.. THIS NEEDS TO STOP RIGHT NOW. WE SHOULD RATHER WORK TOGETHER TO GET RID OF THE CORRUPT PEOPLE LEADING THIS BEAUTIFUL COUNTY OF OURS IN TO THE GROUND, only then will we stomp out poverty.

This Bill would force those folks who have their own business to hire staff they might not need. How is this Bill catering for coloured residents who are being constantly marginalized and excluded from BEE. The latest heresay is, why not go to JHB then you are BEE there, what rubbish.

This needs to stop. It is destroying the quality of our workforce. It is removing most forms of healthy competitiveness and replacing it with unhealthy begrudging. It is removing truly passionate and goal driven members of our workforce. Mostly, it results in the downgrading of the targeted groups as they now have a golden card and doing their best, achieving high standards and keeping up with changes and improvements in their respective fields is no longer a concern.

There should be no race based targets at all.
All employment should be based on merit and suitable qualifications to maintain and transfer much needed skills!

Absolutely preposterous suggestion. Stop obsessing with race and equity and focus on merit and employment opportunities for all suitably qualified persons regardless of any race.

In all instances, the MOST QUALIFIED AND MOST EXPERIENCED person should be the candidate chosen because otherwise the business suffers and it does no justice a person who is not ready to be in that position. It has been over a quarter of a century using this principal, at what point will the outcome of it be measured to say, ok, that's enough? Such a policy is forcing educated people from South Africa and requires professionals from Cuba to be hired. It is nonsensical and does not benefit the majority of the people who STILL live in poverty and in shacks without almost any education to speak or means to better themselves. BEE and alls its levels only allows for rich, educated people of a single race to get richer, it does not undo enough of the past but is hurting the future.

People should be hired on merit and merit alone.

Qualified people irrespective what race or gender they are must get the employment they worked for. Will bring stability in economy. State deprive people from excelling and make a better life for themself. Less people will be depending on the state expenses.

Simply pushing numbers does not put the best person in the right place. It is also not in the best interest of the incumbent in a position or for the organisation. For example, if I, as a woman got a position although my male colleague has better experience and more suited competencies (even if we are equally qualified) and I then make mistakes and have to turn to that very same colleague to fix my mess it only serves to confirm the stereotype. I want to earn my position fair and square. Fix the education system so that we can all compete equally.
