Cosatu to Make Submission On VAT Hike Application to Parliament's Finance Committees
[COSATU] COSATU will present its outright and vehement rejection of government's anti-poor VAT hike to Parliament's Finance Committees at 12pm Wednesday, 25 April, E249, New Wing. The federation rejects the VAT hike as anti-poor and a regressive tax that will hit workers the hardest. It comes on the back of other taxes squeezing workers' dwindling wages, e.g. fuel, RAF, sugar sweetened beverages and below inflation adjusted income brackets.
