Incentives may mean more clothing jobs

"According to Mail and Guardian Online, there is good reason to try to keep the South African textile and clothing industry going because it could create many more jobs, raise skills levels and eventually pay better than survival wages.
The fact is that clothing industries in Lesotho and Mauritius have grown in recent years, as opposed to the steep decline in the South African industry, because piecework and productivity incentives, outlawed in South Africa, are allowed in Lesotho and Mauritius."
