Well, Friday’s strike was quiet enough. No the country did not grind to a halt. And no, the government has refused to abandon the Levy. Instead, they propose to have a 3% levy, effective immediately, and introduce the 5% in July. And to quote the Finance Minister as he presented this proposal as part of his Budget Speech in parliment on Friday – that is that. End of story.
Ooooooo-Kay then. 5 months paying 2% less tax to the government. [pause and reflect on that]
Anyway, I haven’t heard what the unions plan to do in response.
