The Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) is the South African ANC government’s slave-labour scheme. Workers are paid as little as R2,000 per month, for full-time work. The minimum wage in South Africa is R3,500. Across the Province of Gauteng, EPWP workers are saying enough is enough. They are mobilising to march to the seat of the Presidency, at Union Buildings, on 12 February.
In the video below EPWP worker-activists, including members of the Marxist Workers Party (CWI in SA), speak about their struggle.
