Minister of Labour Mildred Oliphant convenes a ‘Know your rights’ campaign for vulnerable workers in the farming and domestic sectors.

De Doorns lies within the Cape Winelands District Municipality and is home to many of the vulnerable workers who work in farms in this country. According to Statistics South Africa, De Doorns has a population of 10 583 people with 8 244 economically active and of those 21% are unemployed. This is an area that has low levels of awareness of workers’ rights and legislation coupled with lack of access to information gadgets like internet, media and computers.

This is an indicative trend nationally when it comes to vulnerable workers like farm and domestic workers. The Minister of Labour has initiated a nationwide ‘Know Your Rights’ campaign targeting vulnerable workers. This is but one of such campaigns that are going to be running throughout the nine provinces.

Journalists are invited to attend the event:

 

Dates:         Wednesday, 20 July 2016

Venue:        DeDoorns East Sports Ground

Time:          09:00
