- Services delivery protests have seen Gauteng turned into a hot mess as workers demand an 18% salary hike
- A video showcasing the destruction caused by striking workers has gone viral with most unimpressed by their efforts
- One user commented that this was a good example of how to find yourself unemployed
With over 100 000 views and counting, a video of protesters trashing city streets has captured the disdain of hundreds.
With hard economic times weighing on everyone's pockets, demanding better pay is understandable, but most feel the actions of participants has taken things too far.
Shared by South Africa LIVE, the clip gives the nation a glimpse into the current situation in Jozi, showing motorists trying to navigate mountains of garbage.
Take a look at what social media users had to say about the disturbing incident:
Brandon Hayden - Imagine working at FNB for example and throwing rubbish on the floor of the office to get paid more..... how to get fired 101
Yushen Don' Naidoo - You're all acting like this for increases.. I'm working in a company for 3 years without an increase.. but I must be content and grateful.. with the way retrenchments are going.. but yeah I'm just preaching to the choir I guess
CJ Keuler - Ok so besides witnessing the normal dysfunctional behaviour that I'm accustomed to which has zero effect on me, what I did see was lot's of KFC packets and no plastic. Those chaps that come take the plastic out the rubbish bags are doing a sterling job. Perhaps we should employ them?
Esme Van Niekerk Geyer - So let me see if I understand this correctly... in order to keep your job you create your own job by overturning rubbish bins you’ll have to pick up tomorrow..?
Idrisa Ally Salum - I wonder how many people "support" this kind of crazy acts! This kind of people "does not care" about others rights as long as "they need money"!!!!
Kobus Mouton - Problem comes from management.every time they give themselves big increases on to there big salaries .workers see this and the problem starts.
