NUMSA president Andrew Chirwa yesterday lashed out at the ANC, countering President Jacob Zuma’s “good story” by saying workers have a bad story and experience to tell as they were still exploited 20 years after democracy.

Chirwa was addressing about 1800 National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) members in front of the Port Elizabeth City Hall after marching against the Employment Tax Incentive Act, which encourages the employment of people between the ages of 18 and 29 for a maximum of two years by way of tax incentives to companies.

The programme is also part of the ANC’s election manifesto. – Mkhululi Ndamase
