Apprenticeship Adverts Omitting pay information Are Unfair
The City of Tshwane is advertising apprenticeships to a vulnerable youth market, or perhaps they’re looking for trust fund kids?! Their advert excludes pay information which creates an entry barrier for applicants from marginalised communities.
We call this Monkey Business
Firms abuse their position of power when they use information advantages during recruitment. In 2017 we made BANKSETA remove similar Learnership adverts and redo them. They continue to include stipend information when marketing to these vulnerable groups of people desperate for opportunity.
