‘Over two million jobs have been returned since the difficult blockade




Data from the national NIDS-CRAM survey show a large return of jobs in South Africa along with a worsening hunger crisis.

The latest findings from the National Revenue Dynamics Survey The Coronavirus Rapid Survey (NIDS-CRAM) were published on Wednesday with some encouraging results.

There was a significant increase in employment recovery between June and October 2020 due to the easing of blocking measures at the time.

Last year, NIDS-CRAM reported that 2.8 million people had lost their jobs between February and April during the difficult blockade.

The latest survey shows that up to 2.1 million people had found jobs, moving employment levels much closer to those that were pre-pandemic, says lead investigator Dr. Nic Spaull.

At the same time, the survey shows that there has been an increase in hunger – and in particular child hunger – over the same period.

There has been a strong employment recovery but it is still not at the pre-pandemic level.

There were about 2.8 million jobs lost since the blockade began in April and now we see it from there … These are not necessarily the same people who lost their jobs.

Half of the people who lost their jobs got their jobs back, but a third of the people who did not have jobs in February, before the pandemic, now have jobs.

Earnings from jobs have not changed significantly from February to September.

Although we see that there has been this improvement in people earning jobs, at the same time, we have seen increased hunger and increased child hunger and deteriorating mental health.
