Abstract

The government is committed to halving unemployment between 2004 and 2014. The HSRC employment scenarios show this required the creation of five million jobs. With the downturn, the same objective has been restated. But running up to 2020, can it be achieved? Yes, absolutely, says MIRIAM ALTMAN.
