SA faces serious shortage of qualified workers – experts are leaving country in search of a better future
South Africans with good qualifications are leaving the country in increasing numbers, causing a serious shortage of well-qualified workers.
Immigration agencies are experiencing an increase in people with good qualified careers who are going abroad for a variety of reasons.
According to informed sources, the main reasons are cited as the shrinking economy, the state’s inability to create jobs, the controversial labor laws that discriminate against whites, and the growing insecurity of ongoing violence.
In particular, engineers, doctors, lawyers are moving to the US, Europe and Australasia, and agencies claim to handle almost 40% more applications than a year ago.
