Is having a job worth it?

Jasmine Uys, Alicedale

I can’t help but wonder about what happened to our beautiful country?

From Friday July 1, everything went up: petrol, electricity, etc, and this in a time when many people are unemployed.

People who actually have a job will only work for petrol money and electricity, and, of course, tax money. They won’t be able to buy food, so, at the end of the day, will it really be worthwhile to have a job? Because you will hardly see your money.

It seems the more you pay for electricity the more load shedding there is. I don’t even want to mention the other problems we are experiencing in South Africa; it will take up too much time and space.

All we can do is hope and pray that things will eventually get better one day. We can only hope.
