Beee is not working for South Africa. Everything is falling apart and work is done with bad quality. I can tell you now after investigations are finished at Driehoek. They will find that the Beee company that installed that bridge at school was not qualified to to the work and they are responsibil for filling those kids. That was a new structure not and old one. And we all know the government only allows Beee to do work, not qualified people.

BILLS LIKE THIS PROMOTE WEAKNESS IN A NATION!!!

If laws like this show anything, they show that this government has no idea what nation building is.

South Africa is supposed to be a democratic-run country? The Employment Equity Bill is contrary to what democracy is all about because this Bill only applies to certain South Africans here in South Africa and not to ALL South Africans currently in South Africa and therefore this Bill is inclined to marginalise some South Africans, as it only favours certain South Africans. In other words, this Bill is prohibitive and therefore causes discrimination with South Africans!

We have been experiencing a well below par economy here in South Africa for some time now, surely the state needs to open-up all of the avenues for all South Africans, no matter their culture, nationality and creeds, to be able to and to be in a position to use each and every opportunity that comes their way to contribute towards the upliftment and the boosting of our economy, without there being any kind of prejudices whatsoever standing in their way that will prohibit/limit/restrict their much needed successes and achievements out there in the business sector? It seems that the Employment Equity Bill is contrary to what is really needed and required in the business sector for all South Africans to be able to contribute towards the upliftment and the boosting of our poor economy!

BEE has not worked any where else in the world ............... People need to work for what they have .
Do they want to chase more white South Africans out the country ?????

Plain and simple people. BEE does not work. Junk status across the land and in our government. Common sense tells you that black people can not run a successful country any were.

I don't support since its all lies till today in workplaces management positions are being given to white and Indian people .....who don't even have qualifications for that post

Because more blacks are already employed in all sectors of government. Whites are suppressed. Unfair labour practice!
There are sectors in government sectors where there are only blacks employed and when a white applies only blacks are employed. Whites have to take whats left whether qualified or not. Blacks are receiving preferential treatment. In that case whites should pay less tax as they do not have choices!

Affirmative action and BEE regulations have not created jobs for disadvantaged people. Investment and expansion of business is the only way to create employment. The government should promote entrepreneurship, small businesses and focus on education. This legislation does not help the poor majority.

This is theft and worse than whatever happened during apartheid. Why do white people who had nothing to do with apartheid have to suffer for this??
Leigh

Something needs to be done... majority of senior managers/directors in private companies are still white. No equality

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) recently found that South Africa’s affirmative action and employment equity policies were unconstitutional.
The SAHRC specifically took issue with the Employment Equity Act’s definition of designated groups and South Africa’s system of data disaggregation.

Government’s failure to measure the impact of various affirmative action measures on the basis of need is also a failure of international legal conventions.

- The definition of designated groups as contained in the Employment Equity Act, and the current system of disaggregation of data could give rise to new imbalances in the labour market.
- Affirmative action measures must be targeted at groups and individuals who are subject to unfair discrimination, to eventually achieve substantive equality and a society based on non-racialism and non-sexism.
- Decisions based on insufficiently disaggregated data fail to target persons who have been disadvantaged by unfair discrimination.
- Without first taking the characteristics of groups into account, varying degrees of disadvantage and the possible intersectionality of multiple forms of discrimination faced by members of vaguely categorised groups cannot be identified.
- The Act must be amended to target more nuanced groups on the basis of need and should take into account social and economic indicators.
- Once the objective of affirmative action, namely substantive equality, is achieved,temporary special measures should cease.

This govt has been ordered by international court to relax their BEE/BBEEE laws.

Not advised - ordered!

I, Nicole van Zyl, hereby refuse to abide by the illegal and unconsitiutional; economically and socially destructive laws brought in or amended to the disadvantage of the minority groups/nations/cultures of South Africa.

I've been without work for over a year after retrenchment and can't find a job because of my race... Give the most experienced person the job. Better education is the key. Do you want the job done or just a BEEE status?

This is pointless. We need to raise our education standards to at least requiring a 60% pass rate. Stress the need for children to excel at what they do, encourage learners to earn distinctions and exemptions.
Drop sexual education as it is currently perverted, all you need is the Life Orientation subject to include 3 or 4 classes on family planning and women's rights. I also believe that Life Orientation subject needs to include really world application like a class on understanding tax and municipal operations.
With the current population growth rate there won't be jobs for most people. Especially not People who pass with only 30%.
Our economy will collapse as nothing will be done properly. Businesses cannot survive if they can't employ properly qualified individuals.

Let the best employee get the job not the right color employee. It is discriminating
Michele

This bill was a good action to the past white privileged generation, But now after 25 years post apartheid it discriminates against a minority race in Sourh Africa, and opened a whole new area where corruption is taking place..

The Equity Employment is not happening for "Blacks" in private sector, instead colored people and Indians are preferred over blacks, therefore there is something wrong with the Act. It does not make sense that in many private companies management positions are still occupied by non blacks, if a position requires a BEE candidate 4/5 times an indian will get the position, and blacks are the majority, and they are also qualified and experienced. Dear Government, you need to regulate Private Sector because surely it dies not want to change! We are building the nation here, and people must change. What is not clear about he word "transformation"?
Charles Molefe
Yes I do
I believe that it should be well regulated mostly in the private sector.
companies tents to have it on paper and the reality is different.
Candidates given positions must the interview to see to it they are aware of the position as company according to their contract of employment.
Wilna

It is not only unconstitutional, but contravenes various international treaties.

The governments inability to create a conducive working environment for companies to grow and new ones to emerge has given politicians the idea that the couple of jobs left, they will decide how to divide them according to race. Never-mind that thousands of jobs are lost as a result of companies not being willing to conform to this blatant racism.

It is unconstitutional.
Anneen
No I do not
In a supposed to be non racial country we still want jobs to be awarded according to race. How is this not a racist act against every one sitting without a job and can't apply for one because he/she is the wrong colour...

No no that can't be allowed.
efos
Yes I do
I strongly agree that it should be tighten and evaluated on regular basis to ensure compliance especially with the private sector
