AN EXPLORATORY STUDY ON DAY LABOURERS IN ELARDUS PARK PRETORIA
Keywords:day labourers, skills training, entrepreneur
AbstractOn Barnard Street, Elardus Park in Pretoria men are standing, raising a finger or miming a skill to attract the attention of potential employers. It is also common to see men swarm arounda car, pointing to themselves in an effort to get noticed and thus hired. This study deals with these people, who are day labourers leading a difficult life as they manage to survive in anentrepreneurial way. Their main need is to access work more easily. Skills training would make this possible. Social work could make a contribution in this respect.
