Prof. Patrick Bond of the Centre For Civil Society speaks to The Real News Network about the end of the platinum belt strike and its implications for the future of labour in South Africa. He argues that the economy is about to formally go into a recession and that rating agencies Standard & Poor's and Fitch’s recent downgrading of South Africa will likely lead to a great deal of posturing about the need to discipline labour and relax some of the gains that labour has won, especially the Labour Relations Act. This may mean restrictions on strikes ahead.
