Massive job cuts at the SABC

The South African broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has issued a notice to staff stating that it will retrench thousands of employees in an effort to save costs.

The state broadcaster confirmed it will proceed with Section 189 of the Labour Relations Act, retrenching up to 981 permanent employees and 1,200 of its 2,400 freelancers.

If the salary bill was R3.1 Billion Rand that is not much of a saving at all.
Just under 15% saving and a third of the workforce gone.
Figures don't add up.
Seems like no managers will lose their jobs and carry on earning bloated salaries.

2400 freelancers I wonder if the freelancers consult out to freelance consulting companies who get assistance from another freelance consulting firm. It's like you have to find your way through the maze of interdiaries to get to the person doing the work.

The way was supposed to be worded.

VERY easy. Start at the TOP. Dead wood eating the big salaries hide there and cover for each other. Fire HR for having a non existing performance management and expose internal corruption.
