President Cyril Ramaphosa is calling on all citizens to work towards a rapid rebound in employment after 2.2 million jobs were lost nationwide in the second quarter of 2020. Eyewitness news reports that Ramaphosa was responding to the data released by Stats SA, which revealed that South Africa’s unemployment rate fell to 23.3% in the second quarter from 30.1% in the first quarter due to fewer people looking for work amid the nation’s strict coronavirus lockdown. Meanwhile,, economic experts have described the Quarterly Labour Force Survey results by Stats SA, as confusing and they are causing an anomaly. Chief economist at Investec, Annabel Bishop, said that their estimates showed that the official unemployment rate would have been well above 45% had Stats SA not classified the job losses differently.
