The BEE concept is unconstitutional. It is discrimination against people based on race. This is unethical. This does not promote a better South Africa for all but only a selected few. Professional skilled people leave SA because of this which has a direct negative impact on SA's economy and investors run away. Think of the bigger picture. Be fair. Act justly.

People should be employed on merit, not skin colour. Government must concentrate on improving education, that is the only way to start to upskill the population. EE reporting is a cumbersome process for employers - that time could be sent better. SA's Labour Laws are a huge barrier to doing business, and a barrier to stimulating the economy.

Racial numerical targets are petty-minded, meaningless & counter productive. Much like cooked chicken & open-toed shoe bans. Apartheid tactics used by the ANC to divide & rule. Authoritarian tactics. We need suitably qualified, committed & competent people serving the country & they come in every colour. Meaningless as stipulating eye-colour for a job! Stop trying to divide us - it will not work!

South Africa has had decades of race based policy, first under the apartheid system and now under the ANC government. Both regimes have had disasterous economic consequences. The time has come to get rid of this legislation, it has done nothing to build the economy of South Africa, in fact quite the opposite. Race based "equity" employment policies have helped build an incredibly wealthy connected elite who through corrupt means have unjustly enriched themselves in the name of transformation. At the same time the country has shed thousands of jobs leading to one of the highest unemployment rates in the world.

This is employment at the expense of the unemployed. It's a disasterous policy that should be scrapped, not doubled down on.

A government that has over the past 20 plus years, consistently stifled the business sector with their regulations for equitable representation, has in fact systematically brought about the highest unemployment rate this country has seen. These Employment Equity regulations clearly aren’t working. Why does the government insist on pursuing them? The government has proven time and time again that they have no control over their MP's and those who are corrupt would in all likelihood pervert this new regulation to benefit themselves and extended family.

I am very challenged when a ministor has so much power of business sectors.

"1. empowering the Minister of Labour (‘‘the Minister’’) to determine sectoral
numerical targets for the purpose of ensuring the equitable representation of
suitably qualified people from designated groups (blacks, women and persons
with disabilities) at all occupational levels in the workforce;"

1. What happens if the minister is corrupt and abuses his/her power?
2. How will we ensure that there are no oversights.
3. How will we ensure fairness and transparency.
4. Will there be a independent body to review the decision of the minitster?

Please ask yourself, based on the track record of our government (western cape exc) do you think this will be done correctly? I dont think so.

It's unconstitutional. The Best person for the job should be hired or promoted based on merit and hardwork. No matter race or gender

Further negative impact on economic growth by the existing act on account of interference with free market economical processes that wil add negativeky tothe already detrimental impact, especially on the segments of society that it professes to support, namely "previouslly disadvantaged" groups that are now worse off financially than under the apartheid administration, in spite of the injustices of its policies.

It goes against our Constitution to discriminate against someone's race foe employment. With the current unemployment rate, and levels of corruption, I believe the BEE level bill should be scrapped in total as it has not been effective in equalizing the equity gap for the past 20 odd years. As a citizen in Gauteng, the new amendment will be dire as we are the moat populated province in SA as everyone moves here from other provinces. Let the most qualified person get the job, help our economy by building it with people who have the knowledge and experience to properly do the job.

It is rather concerning that the prerequisites for actually getting a job in this country are leaning more towards who you are and when you come from, rather than how much you know, how many qualifications you have and if you have the necessary skills and experience to do the job you've applied for. But no matter, SA is like a train on a regular track - where neither the train nor the track is well maintained, and the operator doesn't know the first thing about trains. When trains and tracks aren't maintained, trains are derailed and have nothing less than a devastating affect.

Too much power is given to the minister through this, bargaining councils are already wreaking havoc on industries and destroying jobs, we don't need the minister to tell SMME's and industries that are trying to recover from Covid-19 hard lockdowns and create jobs, what quotas they must employ. There is already many industries with severe shortages of skills, now the minister wants to tell business owners they can't hire qualified people due to the colour of their skin? Rather focus on fixing the education system and getting more Coloured and Black professionals skilled to compete in the job market than this window dressing exercise that will only further destroy jobs and industries. After the failure of BBBEE over the past 24 years that just led to corruption and friends of politicians getting rich, it's honestly baffling that this is still pursued.

The bill is fine as it is and is already creating the opportunities needed, if we amend further we risk to exclude talented individuals who do not fit the stipulated targets. It will become too limiting for business owners.

I do not agree with any further amendments to these laws as business is already struggeling with the current laws.

It is a racially targeted Act - and should be termed “ Revenge Apartheid”, it is a politically activated government programme to forced companies to be racial . It is only going to ensure more educated people - and that includes the well educated people of every skin colour to leave South Africa . Then our corrupt thieving politicians can bullshit the povo , the uneducated, the poor, into thinking they are good . Bullshit baffles, whilst they steal what is left in the coffers . Like Zim and all other newly independent African countries, when there is nothing left , they will blame the colonialists for their stupidity and expect handouts . As that’s the only thing they want - free money ! It’s got nothing to do with honest government or helping their kith and kin.

How exactly will the Minister decide targets? Where will such knowledge to make such decisions be obtained? There is a recognized brain drain across key sectors regardless of race, gender, disability... How will this be monitored and factored in? What exactly is wrong with psychometric testing and why should it not feature (obviously some instruments are not normed for SA populations but why not support research so that they can be)

All south africans need jobs. BEEE has failed the people. It is supposed to be helping and has only been enriching the thieving ANC. The right person for the right job should be able to get the job! Not based on color or quantities as prescribed by government. Companies are loosing money and withdrawing from South Africa and therefore less jobs instead of more.
