Cape Town - The Employment Tax Incentive scheme, popularly known as the youth wage subsidy will be the prime focus of protest by trade unionists and non-governmental organisations outside parliament on Wednesday.
Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan will deliver his budget speech at 14:00.
Also high on the protest agenda will be the long-running complaint about labour brokers and the ongoing protest about e-tolls.
Corruption and spending on education and social grants should also feature.
The fact that Shoprite CEO Whitey Basson on Tuesday noted that food prices, especially in Gauteng, would have to rise because of the additional cost e-tolls has added fuel to budget protest fires.
