‘Vigorous’ labour market reforms needed, says ratings agency S&P

Key challenges facing SA were unemployment and a widening current account deficit, ratings agency Standard & Poor’s (S&P) said yesterday. Chief economist Jean-Michel Six called for “vigorous labour market reforms and a skills development push” to address unemployment. He also said the reduction in the unemployment rate from 25% to 24% last year was misleading because of the rise in the number of discouraged workers, which reduced the size of the workforce.
