SACP demands decent wage for construction workers

Concern is growing about the extent to which workers at various construction sites at 2010 stadiums and other projects continue to be subjected to "terrible" working conditions and poor salaries.

“When FIFA awarded South Africa the rights to host the 2010 World Cup the majority of our people especially the poor celebrated in the anticipation of the jobs that were to be created,” says Malesela Maleka from the South African Communist Party.

The SACP are calling on government and especially the Ministry of Labour to intervene to make sure that this situation is addressed.

“We wish to pledge our full support to the workers, the NUM and other trade unions defending the interests of the construction workers,” says Maleka.
